Not the most scintillating video I have ever posted. However, it does show a snapshot of daily street life in Egypt. This taken in the town of Edfu (which has a large and truly awe-inspiring 2,200 year old temple – dedicated to the falcon god, Horus – which I will blog about another time).
We were on a horse and carriage travelling back to the boat from the temple. There were 4 of us in the carriage and as only 3 can sit in the carriage itself, I had to sit up front with the driver.
Incidentally, the long flowing robes that the men wear (called a ‘galabeya‘) is what I wore to the on-board fancy dress party one evening. Surprisingly comfortable, especially in such a hot climate.
