In this Friday, July 10, 2015 photo, Essam Sayed, 45-year-old “mesaharati,” or dawn caller beats his drum to wake people up for a meal before sunrise, during the holy month of Ramadan, in the Arab Ghoneim district of Helwan on the southern outskirts of Cairo, Egypt. The job was passed down by Sayed’s father and he uses the same 50-year-old drum that his father used for decades. The residents offer Sayed tips and donations in exchange for him calling out their family members and children each night as he passes. (AP Photo/Amr Nabil)
