I also bought some sweets to hand out to the children and next thing I know there was a whole swarm of them. Luckily I was paying Egyptian prices as I made quite a few trips to the shop but the result was a lot of happy smiling children which was lovely. The children here are so polite and friendly, ...

... making a judgement call without really knowing the full story. Learning about the corrupt Government and the way in which the Egyptians, and particularly the Bedouins are treated (or dismissed) is appalling. I can't help but feel that a once successful and thriving Egyptian Empire, has fallen so far. And despite all this, we have had an amazing experience and would encourage anyone to come. After 12 hours on the sleeper train, and countless jolts to wake us up, we arrived ...
