Nuts To You


Seems a good topic to begin the new year. I love the healthy snacks that Egyptians are so fond of. There are shops all over the city that sell nuts and dried fruits and this is one of the best, the nut shop in Maadi next to the post office on Road 9. Every so often I go and buy raw almonds, walnuts, peanuts, dried apricots and prunes.

ooooh it's making my mouth water. Healthy, abundant, and makes for a colorful display.

There is a squirrel in my garden eating cold, soggy nuts from the bird-feeder. If he could see that he would think he was seeing heaven!

Love this composition...the three bins of nuts, the three men and their unique expressions. Wonderful. Have a good 2010!

I bet there are interesting aromas in this little shop.

Happy New Year, Maryanne! As always, I love seeing your photos from the interesting place you call home!

And good eye, those facial expressions are so human!
