Sufi Dancing


Since I'm still somewhat housebound I'm taking advantage of some marvelous photos that a houseguest, Kelly Anderson of New Zealand, took while visiting for six weeks. This is one that she got one evening when she went to see the sufi dancing at El Taz palace in Hussein. This is a free performance every Wednesday evening in a restored Mameluke palace in the Khan el Khalili area.

I went to an evening of whirling dervishes in Turkey. It's quite extraordinary to watch the body and spirit caught up and entranced in this way.
