Creative Interpretations: Mustafa

This is Mustafa, he has a horse drawn carriage ride in Luxor, Egypt. My wife and I were walking to the internet cafe and he wanted to drive us, for a fee of course. I said no, so he said he would drive us back if we didn't want a ride to the cafe.
When we got there he was waiting, and he sat outside for an hour while we were emailing home. We rewarded his determination and took the very short ride back to the ship. He asked for 5 pound Egyptian (about $1), we gave him 10.

Re: Creative Interpretations: Mustafa

Tried to open up the shadow details for this wc interpretation. Still tough but hopefully it works.

Well let me tell the rest of the story...we had just finished paying Mustafa when a little boy came running up yelling, bakseesh, baksheesh with his hand out. (Asking for money, Baksheesh is Arabic for gift)

I didn't have any more Egyptian money on me, so my wife told Mustafa she'd trade him a one dollar bill for one of the fifty piastre notes we just gave him. Mustafa was quite pleased with the trade as 50 piastres is only worth about 10 cents, and the little boy was very happy with the 50 piastre note.

So yes, Mustafa made out...

BTW very nice work everyone on the picture.
