Passing on The Right


Nazlit Semman, the area at the base of the pyramids of Giza, is a cacaphony of voices and a whirl of animals, most of whom shouldn't really be in the midst of automobiles. For first-time visitors, it's flashes of sound, colour and sometimes horror, when the eye catches some of the underfed horses being offered for rides. But when it is a neighbourhood that one occasionally visits for one reason or another, details begin to emerge and some of the whimsy surfaces. This man was taking his camel from the area near the pyramids into some of the residential areas...lunch break? home for the day? Who knows. But he had to make it across three lanes of traffic, cross a bridge and do the same on the other side of the road. Pretty calm camel, I must say.

I've never ridden a camel! Someday. Fun shot. Check out my EAGAN daily photo - we have the same template - you could add a photo to your header. Just an idea. Enjoy the weekend!
