Nice Pictures !! xoxoxo
Thank you. It was an amazing trip.
I will definitely put that location on my wishlist : )
It’s one of those places you want to visit right from the time you studied Egypt in elementary school and it lives up to every expectation. We had a guide who was retired from the Egyptian Antiquities department. It was like taking a university course. We learned so much.
Good that you did it when you did. Things are much hotter over there now.
That could be said about many parts of the world that one used to be able to go to – thinking of how much I wanted to go to Afghanistan and Tibet when I was young.
Times have sure changed and not always for the better.
Beautiful photos. Is that the Nile in some of those photos?
Yes, it is the Nile. We went on a cruise and also for a felucca ride. Both were lovely. One thing that impressed me was the definite edge between the Nile valley and the desert. It was not a gradual change from green to sand, but rather an abrupt demarcation like someone had drawn a line to separate the two.
Love the pictures! What a marvelous trip you had! I lived in Egypt as a child (from age 7 to 10 – in Cairo, we used to go to Alexandria in summer and also Cyprus) I loved it and have te best of memories of that time and place…
OMG, Claude, I’m so jealous. What a wonderful time that must have been.
Very nice. Technical question – did you scan all these photos or were they taken with a digital camera? I find the task of scanning all my photos from my travels daunting.
I took these with a small Canon digital camera. I wrote about my baby camera in my Photo Fanatics blog post – everyone else had HUGE cameras with about a million zoom capacity.
