Young Bedouin seller, Dahab


OOF. The quality of this pic is so brutal – victim of mildew, this slide is – but I’m posting it anyway. I took this, oh, 20 years ago, in Dahab, Egypt, back when it was a backpacker’s paradise of cheap camps and eats and completely devoid of disgusting tourist resorts. Young Bedouin girls roamed the beach in packs, hawking shirts, scarves and other stuff from bags they’d carry slung across their foreheads. Sadly, they were also selling themselves, as my Welsh friend Guy was to find out one day. This little girl asked him, “Do you have money?” and Guy said, “I have lots of money,” and the girl said, “Do you want to fuck?” Geesh.
