While visiting Egypt, I remember wondering how the livestock got onto these islands in the middle of the Nile River. Most times I could see a narrow stretch of land making it almost a peninsula, but this one in particular looked to have deep waters completely surrounding it. It was a long way from any of the main shores, yet there were livestock on this island. This photograph was taken from a boat near Luxor.

The shelters pictured are for the livestock and not for people. Most people in this area lived in more-established structures made of bricks.
