Nile Cruise

Financial crisis hits Felukkas

Making a living is hard.Due to the global financial crisis only a few tourists go on a cruise. Little motor boats that take you to the villages are empty. Very often people from several boats are being collected on one ship. The little boy on his simple board sings songs for tourists and hopes for some coins to add to the family budget.

Cruise ships on the Nile pass by. Local fisherman in their small boats have to watch out not to be hit.

On the left hand side you can see the desert الصحراء الكبرى almost touching the river.
