Photographer's Note

When our ship reached Esna, we have to pass through a lock (like the Panama Canal, only this is not as big). Because of the number of cruise ships sailing the Nile, we have to wait for our turn as there is only one lock operating, the other lock is being repaired.
Even before our ship stopped, river vendors or water vendors came out of nowhere. They sailed right beside our ship. The vendors unfurled the dresses, carpets, rugs or whatever they are selling. They have to shout to be heard. We were on the deck of our ship at the third level. If a buyer wanted to look at an item, the vendor will fold it tightly inside a plastic bag and throw it upward towards the buyer. Then the haggling begins. The vendors throw their goods up to us anyway so we can get a closer look. I have never experienced this before in my life.
