Yes, we took a 3-day cruise up the Nile.
It was glorious. To see the little communities lining the banks, the agricultural areas and the vistas into the plains and mountains.
We stopped at many sites: the temple that was full of mummified crocodiles
which we saw at the crack of dawn, The Valley of the Kings, including Tutankhamun's Tomb,
the impressive Temple of Karnak in Luxor,
|Even the god OSIRIS was excited at KARNAK.|
The fabulous Queen Hatshepsut Temple
and finally the Aswan High Dam with the incredible Abu Simbel Temple.
We found Egypt not very receptive to tourists and difficult traveling. I strongly believe the reason for that is that their religion, Islam, believes the artifacts to be infidel. So not much attention has been paid to them through the many centuries. However, now, they are waking up to the value of the artifacts and monuments which to them is the money that tourism brings.
