Tacky Tourist: You’re covering the wrong end, dear

Our ongoing series of toursits doing or wearing…shall we say interesting things.  Some will make you ROFLYAO, some will make your blood boil, and some will make you want to wander about with a long switch so you could treat inappropriately exposed flesh to a satisfying thwak (perhaps that is just my fantasy, but somehow I doubt it).  This young woman apparently decided that the local mores in Luxor weren’t her concern–she has her head covered; what’s the problem?  

Sincere thanks to the Karnak Great Hypostyle Hall project and their photographer Richard Fero for sharing these images, shot during their season last summer.

The Art of Counting is dedicated to the memory of Margery Meilleur, who first taught me to view history through the eyes of the images we create.
