A Gardener


A week old beard and an intent look could make him look rather sinister, but this man spends his days caring for seedling plants and selling trees to farmers. Many men in Egypt like to patronise a barber for a shave and a haircut once every 10 days or so. The shave is done with a straight razor and is astonishingly close. The beard doesn't appear for days.
