Egypt - cruise on the Nile
~ Impressions of the countryside ~
Egyptian people welcomed us with friendliness everywhere in the country
and we were really dismayed and so sorry to see how many people live in
poverty, in fact the large part of the population, whereas the country,
with tourism, oil and the Suez Canal, has great resources of income.
However, in contrast
to India, most of the people have electricity and water in their houses
and the children receive an education.The woman to the left gave us from
the round flat loaf, thy were baking - delicious!
In the country and cities, the lovely donkey is a most common domestic
animal. He is used for riding, pulls heavily loaded carts and serves
as a pack animal, but also horse carriages are often to be seen – mainly
tourist use. In Edfu, for example, there were hundreds of them.
