In the Neighbourhood


After the hottest part of the day had passed, I made a circuit of our neighbourhood on the bike, discovering new roads. One took me to the Nile, passing this skiff 'dry docked' in a wheat field.


This scene captures the two sides of Luxor: the busy (chaotic) East Bank with all the cruise boats and hotels, and the quiet (relatively calm) West Bank with women watching sheep while a child plays pirate.


On the final leg I passed by some men with sugar cane towering above them.
