  1. 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.

    • 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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.
