When this mother standing on the banks of the Nile saw our boat come closer she send her two boys in a rowing boat to meet us and offer us some fruit and a few trinkets .



We didn’t want fruit or souvenirs, but it was hard to resist those hopeful, and yet confident little faces.                                                                                                                              img_0605-2


We bought some of the trinkets and some bananas, but by the look of admiration in the eyes of the boy for his older brother one could have thought he just sold us a pyramid!


More from Egypt soon
