In Egypt Nabil is a builder and works regularly on the Shunet El Zebib, a site in Abydos, Egypt, that dates from the 27th century BC and is the oldest known adobe building in the world. Nabil is at the Presidio to help build an adobe wall that will represent part of the original Spanish Colonial adobe El Presidio. We like to say he has worked on the oldest adobe building and is now working on the newest.
Next time you are at the Presidio, check out Nabil's work, which is visible from behind the buildings along Funston Avenue, adjacent to the Inn at the Presidio.
