... done the same thing last time and I had asked Ahmed if they still did it. Unfortunately he said that Gecko's was no longer including them in the itinerary, which I thought was a huge shame. But because I asked he said he was happy to call Omar the head of the Nubian family and ask if he was happy to host us for dinner. So he picked us up and we motored south on the Nile for a bit. Took a bit longer than normal because the current was quite strong. Then he walked us through his ...

... a fascinating icon of he holy family traveling to Egypt with another woman, she must have been a relative. The Holy Family lived on this site in the crypt and drank from the well displyed.

Omar was shocked that the crypt was open. It has never been opened in all of his years of guiding.

We also walked to the Ben Ezra synagogue. It was originally a church, but the patriarch could not pay the taxes so he sold to Jews. It was believed to be the site ...
