More Egypt Photos

I've edited the bulk of our Egypt pictures, and I wanted to share a few of my favourites so far. I really can't recommend Egypt enough for a holiday. We saw more in just the 2 1/2 weeks we were there than we have in years. It's absolutely incredible!

(Our camel train at dusk)

(Egyptian men...dressed as Pharaohs...playing the bagpipes...)

(Saqqara, the site of the first Pyramids)

(Behold! The great Pyramid of Giza! If you go, don't be surprised by the extreme amount of tour buses out in front of it. It takes away from the picturesque scene, but it makes for a funny photo.)

(Me looking rather smug about being in front of the pyramids.)

(The tourism police doing what they do best, taking pictures of people...with big ol' guns on there backs)

(On the sleeper train to Aswan)


(a very pre-packaged breakfast on the train)

(one of many ferry captains)

(The Temple of Philae)

(Some dudes that forced us to take a picture of them so we could pay them for it.)

(Getting an amazing henna tattoo done by a lovely Nubian girl)

(In a hot air balloon over the Luxor valley)

ah yes, I've done that sleeper train to Aswan with the , um, lovely meal and I can see by the look on your face in the photos that you enjoyed it as much as I did!

Go on - get your groove back girl - keep posting about whatever - just because you start doing one thing doesn't mean you have to keep doing it. There's lots of people out here waiting to connect.
