Houseboats on the Nile


Houseboats, many of them larger than my house on the farm, line the shore along the neighbourhood of Agouza. The houseboats have a reputation of being a rather racy place to live, something to which I can't testify. The beauty of the spot, aside from being along one of the busiest streets in Cairo, is a real attraction.

Reminds me of the houseboats in Amsterdam :) It must be interesting to live in a houseboat...not sure I'd want to though.

Some of my former colleagues lived on a houseboat. I recall a dead body washing up at some point.

Beautiful photograph, especially when I enlarged the photo. Nice shot.
