Egypt - Pyramids and Feluccas

Location: Giza and Aswan, Egypt

Second day in Egypt was our trip out to the Pyramids. There had been a sandstorm so unfortunately not great weather for great photos.
Took the overnight train to Aswan and then the next afternoon boarded our feluccas for a 2 day trip down the Nile to Kom Ombo.
More photos to come soon.

Jo reunited with her husband after being sold to a local for 10,000,000 camels. Only stopped for a photo and the guy insisted I stand between him and the donkey. Next minute he's picked me up and flung me on the donkey's back and before I know it I trotting along on this crazy, braying animal. Of course then we had to pay for the experience! Fleeced Again!!

Our multi-talented Felucca Captains. The guys are Nubians and not only were we treated to their Nubian cooking and hospitality on the boats, but their muscial talents too. Good fun!!

Water jug outside Nubian house. These are along the road sides, particularly in rural areas. For thirsty travellers. The "cup" is a soft drink can with a handle added.
