Just One Person From Around the World: Egypt

Welcome to Just One Person From Around the World!

I have stopped watching the news….I have dropped all social media, except for my blog, which I try to keep to positive vibes…. there are a lot of folks in the world, who are everyday folks, just trying to provide food and shelter and love……….they are trying to make a living…….keep their kids educated and basically just take care of their families, without an agenda.  Me too. I think there is more of us…. Just trying to live our lives….. So, I would like to take the time to focus on one person a week to bring us together, to celebrate ordinary folks.

Feel free to join Just One Person From Around the World  by creating your own post and then share your link in the comments!

Today, we are in the Desert in Cairo, Egypt! And, here is one of the Desert Police at the Great Pyramid  of Cheops! Do not try to outrun this guy!

    Did you ride the camel Cady? It looks like a long way up from the ground!

    Here’s my post for the week:

    1. No, I did not ride, but hubby did! And yes, it is a ways off the ground! And those camels are mean and they spit! The person on the ground does a lot of movin’ around to stay out of the way! Cady

    2. Sandy, this is a great post! I learn so much every week! It is interesting that there are so many different modes of transportation and you described them so well! I especially like the conversations and the bartering! Haven’t we all been there! It is a great way to reveal how travel really can be sometimes, before you get to your destination! Cady

    Hope you enjoy your travels – that’s wonderful!

    1. No, I get the impression the desert police mean business and if he doesn’t, I know that camel does! Cady

    1. Oh, Margaret didn’t this photo just tell it all? SOOOOOOOO many fish! Do they actually sell all that in a day? I would not be chasing squid down the street……..But, I would love to see that market! I am not a big fish eater, but I do try to order and taste the local dishes…..When I was in France they raved about some little fish ( I can’t even remember what kind) and I decided to order them……They came with their heads and eyeballs and looked like minnows! I could not bring myself to eat them……The French lady at the next table asked me if she could have them as she and her family loved them! Over they went! I just continued to enjoy the wine and the view! Cady

    1. I like having a preview or featured photo to set up the scene! It kinda lets everyone know where we’re going! It doesn’t HAVE to be be JUST ONE Person in the photo always…..It’s the idea that there are a lot of regular folks doing their thing around the world……that’s what I am focusing this challenge on……Cady

  9. I love your idea of sharing Just One Person… Just yesterday I posted a story about an artist I met on a walk. What a story. I love people stories and know we all are made of stories. I share my link here, and look forward to reading all the stories you share. https://girlinniagara.com/2021/03/23/artist-antonio-merino-is-one-in-a-million/
    Do you post these once a week? Are there any specific guidelines to join or is it just about sharing one person?

    1. GIN, Yes this challenge is posted every Wednesday….It is to show people from around the world, just getting on with their lives….day by day…..A photo of one person is excellent, but if you need to set up the scene with multiple people so be it! I am not the Challenge police! Ha ha! Thanks for joining us this week……your post will be featured again on March 31st! Cady

    2. This is what we all need to hear isn’t it? What an inspiring post! Antonio truly gets it! And passes the message along……… Does he sell his work? Does he go anywhere else or can he be found only at this overlook of the city? Just be one in a million! I like that! I hope you will join us again this week! Cady

    1. Wow, another very interesting post! I can’t help, but think, somehow I was looking at puppets! Like someone behind the curtain was pulling a string and perform they did………I was reminded of the people we met in Albania and how they lived under Communist rule….only the elites, as determined by the government, got anything and the people detested them….also the athletes were taking vitamins (steroids) provided by their couches to enhance their performance. Later at early ages many athletes were suffering severe health problems…The men said the couches and trainers came to the cities to recruit good athletes and from that time on the athlete was taken for training in a strict closed environment and tested to their limits. They were treated like royalty and had the best housing and food. Their parents were acknowledged in the village and received perks also. All in all, they were so thankful when the Communists left (they had decimated their country, environmentally and every other way) and they are still trying to recover, years later! We have been to the DMZ and seen the other side of the story as told by the South Koreans and defectors from North Korea. Very interesting! One village in Albania, we visited, had taken the huge white rocks on the mountain side for all to see, that one time spelled out the Communist leader of their country and moved them around to spell, “NEVER AGAIN.” I’ll have to find my post on that!

    Great to see a real person at work on a camel, rather than a horde of tourists. The pyramids are amazing, but I was shocked by how close they are to town, and the crowds.
    I’ve got us a person, heading off with determination early morning – probably going to the wonderful food market: https://travelwithintent.com/2021/03/25/shopping-day-in-arles/

    1. I really liked the photo from the back! I like all that gear on her head! Do you take photography workshops? Thanks for joining in this week! I was shocked at how close the pyramids were to the city too! I thought they would be far, far away! But, no! Cady

    1. Glass blowers are amazing and I have found that many of them have followed in the family footsteps or trained for many, many, many years….Was it hot in there? When we went to Italy to see the Murano Glassblowers it was so hot in there (and I am used to heat and humidity) I thought I was going to pass out! But, the glass they produced was unbelievable! Thanks for joining in again this week! Cady
