Saturday’s scene: A Whirling Dervish


Whirling dervish

Spinning round and round ever faster, this Sufi whirling dervish kept his balance as our Cairo dinner cruise motored down the Nile. Can you feel the intensity in this blur of a photograph? I was sailing on the Nile Maxim as part of a small group cultural tour to Cairo hosted by AuthentiCity Travel. The performance is actually a form of religious mediation by the Sufi Dervishes of the Mevlevi order. The next act? A belly dancer.
