And nothing quite reflects the self-centred reality than the vacuous pictures adorning Egyptians' social media sites.

Porto Elsha3b mimics the advertising campaign for 'Porto' - the luxury brand behind various nationwide resorts including Porto Cairo and Porto Sokhna.

Here's our selection of the grittiest pictures available.
