We had a typical day at sea on our way to Safaga. We had passed through the Suez Canal overnight and the Red Sea was very calm. It was warm and sunny, about 81 degrees. We attended the lecture on Egyptian history in preparation for our visit to Luxor and I enjoyed the culinary demonstration with George Geary -- and I signed up for his hands-on class on January 25th.

The individual cargo bundles were then unloaded in these open-air trailers, starting the scramble of about 200 men on top, tossing all the bundles down to the pier.
