And that man waits... smoking his big pipe. He is waiting for some customers. And he smokes, for the moment... with a lot of patience. That's life. Bravo, Ken: so an intelligent photo! Ciao,

Default To chris04stop: Patience

Patience is definitely a virtue that's well-developed in societies like Egypt, compared to the west. There's a lot of time when there's simply nothing happening, and there's nothing to do but wait. (That's what I wrote about in the Note for the earlier picture that you commented on.) I think in the west, we're not so good at being alone with our own thoughts. But Egyptians don't seem to mind--or if they do mind, they don't show it. Regards, Ken.

Thanks for your answer, Ken. I perfectly understand what you say. But...Oh...IF I HAVE NO PATIENCE! I am a hurricane! And this is not a very good thing... Ciao, take care,
