Algiers Series | Culture and Pride |Between an opulent facade of the monumental Grande Poste D’Alger and the Boulevard Mohamed Khemisti, a heritage pop-up souq is set up. People glance at a pottery stand as they go about their day in the centre of Algiers. The merchants joke lightly amongst themselves, because even though struggle is imbedded in the history and the very fabrication of the culture, laughter is always a means to get by. Algiers is neither fast pace nor dormant, but quite simply what it is; a city that makes its own rules. Although some traces of a global lifestyle are evident, the pride of a nation remains just that – a strong sense of pride.
