We’ve been to Egypt! On a cruise up the Nile, from Luxor to Aswan and back. Photos are available. We had a fantastic time even despite the inevitable gut lurgy that pretty much all the tourists on the boat came down with at one point or other. We saw lots of temples and tombs, sweltered in about 50ºC heat, and swam in the on-deck swimming pools. We visited papyrus and perfume shops and got accosted by lots of hawkers – everyone was very friendly and enthusiastic, even if most of them were trying to sell us something!
