The night the desert turned muddy

gouna egypt

I’ve been in Gouna, Egypt, for almost 6 months. Gouna is desert country.

Hot, dry.  No water except from wells and the pipe that brings it in from the Nile.

Most especially, no rain.

Evah.

Except for yesterday.

It started raining around 6PM, and by late evening there were orographic thunderclaps in the distant mountains.

By morning, the dirt road outside my house had turned to mud.

It is the will of Allah.
