Slice of the city: Algiers

I visited Algiers and found it a very strange place. Horribly expensive hotels and absolutely nothing to do in the evening (though I see from your article that the local authorities are trying to address the situation) and huge numbers of police with guns milling about at seemingly random checkpoints. Not that they were at all threatening to me, but they did seem to be overly worried for my wellbeing. I'd agree the place shows a lot of promise, but it wasn't quite as idyllic as you pointed out. I'll give it five years and then return to see how things have changed.
