  • Absolutely right. I've changed the original on Flickr and I'll have a bash at replacing the whole slideshow at the weekend. It sometimes takes a while! Thanks Helmut and thanks again for your image of a shaduf - superb.

  • Re 17/25: Note that this is not the 'Aswan Dam' (which was built in ca. 1900 and improved later) but rather the 'High Dam', Al-Sadd al-'Ali, built 1961-1965. It is south of the Aswan Dam.
