I was lucky enough to visit Egypt with my husband in Nov. 2008. We saw amazing sights, met wonderful people, and got to taste wonderful different types of food.
We spent ten days in country, and went to many markets or 'souq'. One night we were wandering around the souq in Luxor and we came to this spice stand.
I took this picture in the spice stand and it turned out to be one of my favorites. I like the tiny fibers, in a big pile, with the smooth green line underneath. The bottom half is perfectly horizontal, but the top half is thrown wild and uneven. I also like the bold colors of orange, green and white.
