Flag of Egypt  ,
Saturday, October 27, 2007

A long day and we are back to our temporary home. How many entries have started with "a long day" or "a long drive"? Too bad I am not more creative with opening lines...
Our last evening was spent trying to repay Gill and John for the generosity they had shown us throughout our time in Luxor. We treated them to dinner at Maxine's, one of our best meals in Egypt. I could not get enough of the fresh mango juice and the spicy curry chicken was exactly the kick my bored taste buds needed.
For desert, I was adventurous, and ordered the mystery special, while Ben stuck to ice cream, but when my banana surprise arrived, I gladly traded for coffee and mango ice cream and Ben couldn't eat the bananas fast enough.
Not willing to let the night end, we went back to our hotel and enjoyed the veranda and a couple more drinks and many, many more stories. Our time in Luxor was made all the more memorable for having the opportunity to share it with wonderful people, and I don't think we would have seen as much, or appreciated it as thoroughly without our wonderful, voluntary guides.
We hope that one day Gill and John will take us up on our offer to host their visit to Vancouver.
