Her name is Zainab. With her friends she walks up and down the boardwalk in Dahab selling bracelets and making small talk with the tourists. Her English is great and her personality is infectious. One day she sat down with us at the cafe overlooking Lighthouse and played with my camera.

She got a lot of silly shots of me, and of me playing backgammon with her friend.

She did not ask us to buy that day. We spent an afternoon together, and when we were finished with our game they went along their way.
