Egypt - Day 10: Aswan very interesting village

A travel blog entry by dorlina


... trip.
We rented Habibi ‘s motor boat to travel around the islands in Aswan before sunset. We first stopped at Kitchener’s Island. It is a botanic garden on an island.

Dan re-joined the truck. Due to Ramadan all the places to eat are closed during the day - except MacDonald's and KFC! Bedded.
25th Very few tourists in Aswan - not many now travel so far South in Egypt - we were the only guests in our hotel. Louise left the truck. Found out that the owners ...

Busy Day in Aswan

The one boy was holding the papyrus against Bill, he reached into his pocket and knocked the boy's hand coming out with our money that was in the midst of being stolen, causing the money to go falling onto the street. I heard the boy say "it's my money" and saw Bill gathering the money up and putting it in his pocket. We crossed the street and boulevard when he started ...
