This photo of a man (almost camouflaged because of the wall) was taken at the Nubian village in Aswan. . . Apart from the brightly coloured houses and the super friendly people, the highlight for me was the crocodiles! They were taken in as pets as their pheromones repelled other intruders. I saw one in a stone cage myself . . #egyptforwomen#egyptissafe#aswan

Who would have imagined? :D #egyptissafe#egyptforwomen#cairo#humansofegypt

The second photo was snapped about three hours later when she was half done. She also mentioned she had a final exam tomorrow. 😀 Her artwork is incredible.
