13 Absurd Photos that Prove Sahel is Totally Crazypants

Sahel season... An exhausting and exhilarating month. Remember the days when you'd sit around your karya at night at eat fiteer with your cousins? Maybe you'd get really wild and have two fiteers. Maybe one of them would have eshta on it. Well that was then and this is now and these days Sahel doesn't do chill anymore. If you're not prepared to stay up all night schmoozing with people who can spell Marchesa backwards while a trapeze artist/waitress hanging from a beam serves you unicorn tartar on a tray made of bubbles, then you're just not in with the cool crowd.

Sahel season is extravagant, outlandish, insanely entertaining, and quite frankly, downright impressive and incredible. And our snap-happy sibling CairoZoom was on hand to capture all the antics. Here are some of the best (read: weirdest) moments from this year...

We don't know why there is a robot.

 How can I become a bubble? The balls stuck to my body don't seem to have worked. I'll get there someday.

 I will not let my fans down by wearing something normal.
