... The felucca boat has no electricity and no toilets it is just a boat with a big foam mattress and the is where you eat, hang out and sleep!! We had 3 Nubians running the boat and they cooked and cleaned! Their food was delish!! It was such a relaxing time, just listening to music, sunbaking and swimming!! We were careful not to put our heads under the water!! Eugh the Nile looked so gross in some spots but most of the time it was lovely! When I was putting bushmans insect ...

In da Nile

A travel blog entry by robbiej on Jul 10, 2015

... just wasn't quite finished. There are 372 cruise liners on the Nile. Only 8 operate today. There is near no money for upgrades and maintenance. People will try anything to sell you something, they will walk with you, try to talk and shake your hand and even yell out a country and hope that it's the one where you're from! We were walking in our group through some markets that were pretty dead. Ahead of us was a weathered middle aged Egyptian man with a dirty puma shirt ...

Day 5 - Felucca Sail on the Nile

A travel blog entry by arigney87 on May 20, 2015

... much to add since my background is so vastly different.

  • A bonfire and drum circle with our Nubian boat crew on the beach under the stars.
  • Lying all in a row with Shithouse, Stephanie, Nathan, and Zach (until he passed out drunk-hausted), with our heads hanging out of the mosquito net and on the edge of our boat looking up at the stars
  • NOT getting eaten alive by mosquitoes for once!
  • The perfect day, just what I needed. ...

    Day 4 - Abu Simbel

    A travel blog entry by arigney87 on May 19, 2015

    ... falafel, beans, feta, pita, cucumber, and chips. I finally caved and had my first drink of the trip, a crisp and cold Stella… no, not the Stella from the states, but rather Stella, the Egyptian beer. It’s a light lager, the Corona or Imperial or Cristal of Egypt. Exactly what I needed.
    For the next 4 hours we lazily cross-cut sailed up the Nile, with a gorgeous view of the sunset with feluccas silhouetted against the sun. At one point we needed to go under a low ...

    Day 3 - A Romantic Temple & A Big Damn Dam

    A travel blog entry by arigney87 on May 18, 2015

    ... victim of the High Dam's impact. It's original location was completely flooded once the dam went in, and it took the government nearly 8 years (1960 to 1968) to relocate it to a safer area. Inside the temple you can see a lot of the stone stained black from the time it was underwater. Really, an absolute tragedy.

    We learned the offerings that were given to the gods at all temples across Egypt were: lotus flowers (summer), lotus flower essence (winter), red ...
