TOSHKA, EGYPT - MARCH 14: Hosny Ahmed Said, 50, beside the pumping stations beside the Future Village of Abu Simbel, March 14, 2012. The water is insufficient and unpredictable so it has been rationed to certain fields leaving others to run dry. Abu Simbel is a one of the southern most villages in Egypt. It is most famous for its remains from Ancient Egypt, but it also draws Egyptians from across the country to work and make their dreams in its farms and jobs. (Photo by David Degner/Getty Images)
