Life on the Nile River.

Here are some photos from life along the Nile River in Egypt. At the delta of the Nile is a series of lakes. I went to visit Lake Mariout, close to Alexandria.

This fisherman lived on a clump of dirt in the lake. Right next to a busy highway that goes to Cairo.

Living near the city means that the fish get sold really quickly.

I was on a boat ride at Aswan and saw this felucca down the river.

A couple of feluccas set against the west bank sand dunes and hotels.

I liked this graphic of a cat on a boat on the Aswan reservoir.

This old minaret by the Aswan reservoir was falling apart from where the water had risen during flood times.
