Photographer's Note

Siwa Oasis is located 50 km from the Libyan border. On a long weekend in March, I took two 5 hour bus rides (the first from Cairo to Marse Matrouh, then a mini-bus at 4AM from Marsa Matrouh to Siwa). It is an amazing area; although there are tourists, the village seems virtually untouched by time. I took this photograph while biking around the area, visiting the oases and ruins of temples. After I took the picture, I later saw this man weaving baskets on the side of the road.
