Egypt, quick snippit
It's already worth yesterday's 9 hr bus ride. A village with history separate from the rest of Egypt. Mud-brick enclosures, donkey-cart taxis, a book on the culture of the Berber-Siwan people written by a native siwan and signed by the author in his shop last night.
R, in an amazing display of relaxation, is sleeping in this morning after sleeping the majority of the bus trip yesterday.
So, I'm relaxing under the palm trees and enjoying the quiet.
