1st Egypt trip '09

A herd of eight goats just went by, bleating most unattractively, with spotted, hanging udders and hairy coats. Their kids are very cute, standing on the highest point they can find in order to see the world. There are birds and plants here in town: palms, hibiscus and olives, all overlooked by the harsh brown mountains and beaten by the sun. A group of schoolgirls walk past, swathed in black and brown; the boys pause and watch them pass, as the girls giggle behind their books.
