Felucca Boatman, Luxor, Egypt

Felucca Boatman, Luxor, Egypt

This hard-working man was one of several boatmen who moved my tour group along the Nile River in feluccas, the traditional sailboats of the Nile. You can see the sail of another felucca behind him.

The sun highlights part of his face and shows some vitiligo, a disease that causes loss of skin color in blotches.

His stare is rather haunting.

Enjoy the images of the two boatmen seen below.
