Chapter 2 narrates the personal meanderings and wanderings and descriptions of billboards advertising massive real-estate projects of compounds and gated communities along the commute to the Eastern Desert towards the district of New Cairo. It also addresses one Ramadan television serial and three dystopian novels, which portray imagined and real depictions of the gated communities’ lifestyles of the rich and apocalyptic images of the city of Cairo.
