A Little Help From Friends


A week ago I was hosting a group of high school students at the farm and their bus managed to run off the dirt road into a ditch. My jeep isn't exactly big enough to drag even a small school bus back to the track, but happily my neighbours happened to have a bulldozer handy. They came over and very, very carefully lifted the bus back onto the road. What would we do without our neighbours?

It seems that whenever anything interesting is going on in Egypt, there are always some men and boys sitting on the ground supervising!

It's so true!

looks like the men are pushing the bulldozer to get it going!

Gosh, where would we be without neighbors? Glad you got unstuck.

Wow, now that's some dozer.

When a horse dies we get help from them as well to carry the horse up into the back of the desert and bury it in an old quarry. Happily, this service isn't provided very often.

Hmmm... curious... Are they just generous people (if those still exist) or do you pay them for this help?

These are my neighbours and out here we still help each other out. Besides, it makes a great story for them to tell over tea.
