Later Bassel complained to the Manager of the hotel and the Manager ended up begging my forgiveness. Annoying Ecolodge guy stayed away from me after that, but I think he was a little miffed. As long as he wasn't busy annoying me, I didn't care.
First we walked around the City of the Dead and then we met our Guide Mohammed
Anyhow, you can get the gist of the sights from my photos. So enjoy.
Oh, one thing I was going to leave out but I guess I'll confess now that it's a week later... as most of you know I usually injure myself right away when I travel so I've already gotten that out of the way. I sprained my foot something fierce the night I left the Ecolodge. I was walking down a dark hallway and missed a step. Heard it snap. But having heard that sound so many times before I knew what to do. I could still wiggle my toes so I knew it wasn't broken. I wrapped it up and carried on. (My personal feeling is that Annoying Siwa Ecolodge Guy cursed me.)
As of today (April 29) the swelling and bruising is gone. I still can't twist it and it's still tender but it should be perfect within a week. And in between spraining it and today, I've hiked every temple and tomb in Egypt (it feels like), I didn't miss a thing. I was very lucky because for a few minutes there after I missed that step I thought my vacation was over. I'm profoundly lucky it didn't break, so everything is fine. Don't worry.
