More pictures of Egypt

I have a cold today. Sniffle, sniffle, snort. I picked it up on the plane home from Alexandria (boo!).

So I offer you photos instead of words, as my brain is too fuzzy to write.

Fresh coffee beans at Sofianopoulos

Coffee and .... nesquik

Roasting the beans - it was deafening in there!

Once the beans are roasted, they're round

Flower seller taking the thorns off the rose stems

Alexandrian equivalent of Bunnings

Trying to decide which shoes to buy

Market men pausing for a shisha

Freshly milled flour for sale

Old dude in old clothes

Local furniture shop - the alley!

Washing day near the catacombs

Thanks for sharing. I have an on going fascination for faces and how they interconnect round our world. I imagine Egypt to be a relatively clean genetic pool compared to say America or Australia so it is fascinating to see Egyptian faces coming out in what we think of as American faces, with a bias towards the English?Irish background. love it and all of your travel photos.

Once again your photos are enticing me to go to places I've never thought about visiting. Hope the cold gets better & the parcel arrives soon!!!
