As expected after raising the disputed Hala’ib triangle in the Egyptian media thanks to El Bashir’s officials statements earlier this year , it is no longer on radar and the neglected disputed rich-in much need of development is back to the abyss of oblivion.
Well I did not forget this area and today I share with you those photos from there giving you a glimpse of the neglected triangle there. The photos are taken by photographer Yasser El Rasoul in 2012. I gathered the photos from his Facebook Page in to storify Slideshows to be published in a series through out this week here in the Egyptian Chronicles.
I will start the series with photos from Shalateen Port in the city of Shalateen.
Here is Shalateen port on the map.
Only last September 2013 the minister of transportation in the interim government agreed to found an international marine port in Shalateen.
Yasser El Rasoul took over 100 photos from different areas in the triangle. Of course I must hint out that he is one of the best photographers in Egypt to use HDR in nature photos. These photos should not be only published on Facebook but rather in some Egyptian National Geographic if we are speaking seriously.
They are amazing photos and honestly I will use them in order to make you back here and read more about that part of Egypt.
You can go to Shalateen easily.According to my friends who went there , there are two humble hotels there.
Insh Allah One day I visit this place with my little camera and document life there in Egyptian Chronicles. It is on my bucket list. Hopefully soon insh Allah I will make it.
This series is dedicated to late Mindy Bahaa El Din.Her birthday is today.
