The water wheel in Edfu Egypt

These are photos taken on Our way back from El-Kab  Near Esna Egypt.
The first time I have seen the Cow being used to turn the water wheel,
they used to blind the beast at one time,   now they put a blindfold on to stop the beast going giddy.
notice  there is no person with the cow,  it was only a chance that we saw this,   when traveling I do not usually miss things such as this.  but I was engrossed watching the Nile side of the road as I have never seen an area with so many working camels.  as I was trying to get a good shot of the camels my friend  spotted the cow . so we turned back and spent a good 15 mins. at the scene.
