It is 6.30 am and today we are driven to the airport for a flight to ASSUAN. Some of the tourists who were with us in Cairo and Alexandria are returning to Athens today.
The tour leader can control the group better now, and it is better for us too. It is the 4th day and we start getting to know each other, we share jokes, and exchange thoughts.
ASSUAN is Egypt's door to Africa, and we are eager to see as much as possible.
On board M/S REGINA BOAT - SAILING TO LUXOR
It is noon, and we are on board the cruise ship
It is the 6th day.
It is the 20th and we are still sailing ....
LUXOR contains the largest collection of historical monuments in Egypt. We visit ancient THEBES and the VALLEY OF THE KINGS, the TEMPLE OF QUEEN HATSHEPSUT,
KARNAK, and the incredible temple of Luxor on a high dune overlooking the Temple of KOM OMBO.
We have arranged to have a party tonight on board the ship. We have nice people in the group, and we meet all at the dining room with the clothes we bought from Luxor today. The party is great. All the men from the group are dressed in long Arab dresses wearing a long piece of cloth round their heads, and the women wear their new Arab costumes as well. We all look nice, and we have much fun. We play games and it is really magic.
