An enormous lake glimmers in an otherwise infertile desert, providing much-needed nourishment to crops, livestock and a thriving community. Siwa lies about 600 kilometers southwest of Alexandria in Egypt, but it’s worlds away from the sea of modernity that continues to wash upon the country’s northern city shores. This is a place that is truly lost in time. The sands of these desert dunes have moved and shifted for millions of years, but somehow Siwa has remained much as it was when Alexander the Great visited in 332 AD.
