The authoress of this article tries to answer the question: 'What does a consistency of place consist in?' In order to exemplify the problem she has chosen an except from Ryszard Kapuscinski's 'Podróze z Herodotem' (Travels with Herodot), concerning an experience of place in Cairo. The authoress focuses her attention on the concepts of: rootedness, separation, squeeze, closeness, distance, abundance, lack of coherence. She discusses the problem of tackling an otherness of place. She tries to unravel the point of experience which interrupts 'hurried' anthropology of place.
