My Photo Essay
A felucca can be many things. It can be a romantic date, a party on the Nile or a relaxation outing with friends. To me, a felucca is an easy getaway from the busyness and loudness of the city. If you live in the city, you need to travel every now and then for fresh air, different scenery and some time for leisure. A felucca is only minutes away from home but it will take you far away from your daily worries and obligations. Twice a week, I hop on a felucca at night for an hour. I feel the cool breeze of the Nile and smell the water. I listen to my music or just the sound of the motor. I watch the movement of the current and stare at the city lights. Aboard the felucca my senses are electrified and I am forced into silent meditation.
