A Walk By The River By Dania Hany

‘A Walk By The River’ by Dania Hany is a poetic depiction of Heisa – one of the remaining islands of Nubia that is still populated with native Nubians who didn’t leave after the flood. They have grown a great sentimental value to the land and the river that goes far beyond a mere visitor’s notice. Frequent visits to the island ought to let this to reveal itself. The roughness of the environment, the hot weather and the inevitable isolation are all put at ease by the end of each day with a dip in the shivering cold water and a walk by the river.
