... there are sites!) in the desert. Driving on sand dunes is no walk in the park - I liken it to driving through Chicago following a bad ice storm - but our fearless guide and driver, Wahed (self proclaimed King of the Desert), navigated us safely through the desert, including down a 3 story high dune. Highlights of the trip included the black desert (aptly named), collecting star rocks (actually fossils but they look like black stars), ...

In Aswan we got to see the granite quarry that provided the obelisks for Egypt. We also saw an unfinished obelisk and the poor people working on it had to abandon after completing much of it as they found a crack in the rock.
