The barrier

From behind the train window while I was traveling in a long trip to Nubia, southern Egypt, I noticed this man walking and sadly looking down. He seems to be loaded with worries but at the same time he was moving ahead wearing a full suit, going to his work, I imagine. A life of a man who ought to do his responsibilities in life regardless the foggy path of his dreams.
