A man sleeping in the shade in Balana, near Kom Umbo. Temperatures reach over 45C in summer. It's not possible for street vendors to keep standing under the sun for long periods. They usually leave their goods on the street and find a nearby tree to rest underneath and stay in the shade. Note the concept of siesta isn't lost on the Nubians too darn hot.
Ruins of the deserted Nag' Bleida, an old Nubian village in Gharb Aswan. They show a glimpse of what the original Nubian houses looked like. Thank Nesben.
