Little Man


I love this little man who lives with his family on an island in the Nile. When I met his folks, they lived exclusively from tourism. This includes allowing tourists into your own home. But my small friend decided that some places were out of bounds and cheerfully blocked the way to the living room with its wondrous collection of prayer mats.

His small act of defiance has stayed with me throughout the Egyptian Revolution. Hopefully, he and all his people will be able to find their way to a better, happier and fairer future in 2012.
