Gedida village has become a stop on most tourists' circuit of Dakhla, and provides for a slightly awkward moment. The factory here, Dakhla's only, is some sort of local pride, but it is just two rooms with a handful of girls making small sticks from palm trees, that are later assembled into products like chairs or boxes. It is quite far from most visitors' (urban Egyptians alike) image of a factory.
