 Jan's Notes  Jim's Photos And Comments
Jan crashed this afternoon, but rallied to party later...

Pardon my anachronism - we actually saw this on day 5!

The unfinished obelisk. Note the crack in the foreground. Had it been finished, it would have been rolled downhill to the Nile and put on a barge for the trip to Alexandria, Memphis or Cairo.


After our morning visit to Abu Simbel, we flew back to Aswan and boarded our ship, Sun Boat IV, for our cruise on the Nile. We got to ride a Felucca to board our boat

Most of us took the afternoon to catch up on our sleep before the evening's party.

Jan becomes the entertainment.

The band, in traditional Nubian costumes. Most of the crew was nubian, Aki tells us, because they are so nice. They are.

Part of the entertainment was a dance by a Whirling Dervish.
