Some of the hardest things for me to see when I travel abroad are the harsh conditions and treatment of animals. Here, I was walking in the City of the Dead in Cairo, Egypt, a massive cemetery where it’s estimated nearly 500,000 of it’s 9,000,000 people live. A donkey tethered to a pole.

On one of my half dozen trips to Egypt between 2004 and 2008 I traveled to the Sinai Peninsula and hiked Mt. Sinai. This picture taken on my descent after watching the sun rise over the desert.
