The Trip To Egypt, 2004
Day 6a, Esna
Temple of Khnum
|Jim's Photos And Comments
Culture: Arab balconies so Muslim women can peer through the screen w/o being seen. (This is where we saw local women w/baby walking around the temple to try to get a baby-unusual opportunity said Aki to see superstition today based on forgotten ancient Egyptian belief in action; women don't know the connection to the ancient Egyptian belief.)
Time of declining art; can't show grip; disproportional arms.
Looking down on the temple.
Looking up at the columns. Remind you of HR Giger?
The two local women with a baby Jan describes.
A man delvering bread. Note the impressive bank building in the background.
The protector of the house, overlooking the temple.
Busy dock, eh. You walk through the ships to get ashore.
