Abdo Al Assiuiti, sells fruits and vegetables in the center of Abu Simbal. Each night a young man comes around with incense.

Abu Simbel is a one of the southern most villages in Egypt. It is most famous for its remains from Ancient Egypt, but it also draws Egyptians from across the country to work and make their dreams in its farms and jobs.
