Egypt, Middle East

Feluka on the Nile

At an earlier visit to Luxor we enjoyed a nice ride with a feluka to Banana Island. So we suggested this idea to Gerhard and Maria, who were visiting Luxor for the first time. This time we “enjoyed” almost not moving on the Nil as there was almost no wind. But the tea served by a young boy was good and we had a relaxing time. Why is it the young boy of about 12 years who has to do the whole work on the boat, while two Egyptian men are sitting or even sleeping in the boat? Who will get the money we paid for this trip??? There seems to be much injustice and exploitation of their own people in this society!
