Cairo, Egypt -- The Sufi Dervish sect puts on a "whirling dervish" dance show every few nights at the Wikala al-Ghouri (the Ghourija). Accompanied by Arabic music and song, the dance is actually a religious observance, commanding total focus and movement to honor and commend devotion to the one true God. © Rick Collier / RickCollier.com
