FURTHER DOWN THE NILE – WATERCOLOUR SKETCHES

As we progress down the Nile, the valley widens and closes revealing miles of lush agricultural lands on occasions, and then the desert makes an appearance with high limestone cliffs butting up against the river, marking the edge of the desert.

At other times the cities and towns come into view. The high-rise buildings seem very similar to the high cliffs of the desert edge.

As the boats slips by, children an adults rush to the shore and wave. I thought that this was because we are some of the first tourists for a couple of years, but I’m told that this has always happened.

In some places with lush water meadows and net fishing it feels like the place has never changed.
