A small town on the edge of the Nile , with a few fishing boats. The houses are typical houses seen almost everywhere in Egypt. They consist of a skeleton of concrete with walls filled in with mudbrick. The unfinished appearance of the house is for the future families (son, daughters) to move in later. Another level is simply added on top of the existing structure.
