Egypt, 2008


These photos were taken during our time in Egypt in February and March, 2008 following a tour of Libya.

The photos begin with our arrival in Cairo and follow through the length of a cruise up the Nile from Luxor to Aswan, and then on to Abu Simbel, as well as our last few days in Cairo.

Be sure to include the Abu Simbel "add on" if ever you take a Nile cruise.

The trip was a "once in a lifetime" experience and certainly one to be remembered for all the right reasons. Fortunately, it was during a period of political stability in Egypt. Sadly, taking the same trip today would be a much less comfortable adventure.
