It’s a simple image, but I found it very symbolic… Taken from the boat, while sailing the Nile.. an excavation.
I kept thinking about those ruins. As it was very near Aswan, (and near Sudan border,
came to help me some verses of a Sudanese poet.. Al-Saddiq Al-Raddi

Let the maps explode. How can the land be lost
When the future belongs to the Nile?
The Nile knows of the disgrace of cities
That have vanished.
Knows of the old times
Yet never speaks.
It is the Nile…
