So much has been happening in our world the last three days - I've not had the time to write a "traditional" blog, but have been capturing thoughts and ideas about the protests/demonstrations you all are hearing so much about. It's time to play catch up, and I think I'll do it simply - through photos. Hope you don't mind. Here goes the last three days..............
|"Local" Belly Dancer on the ship. Uh huh.|
|These guys are strong. This case weighs 74 pounds! Plus,|
he had one under his arm. Amazing.
|The row of ships. Quite a sight.|
|At the "Unfinshed Oblisk" where all Oblisks were quarried.|
This one would have been the largest in the world, but it broke as
they tried to remove it.
|Atop the granite hills near Aswan.|
|How could I resist this shot? They were all standing together,|
looking at the Nile as it flows from the Aswan Dam. The
colors were astounding! :-)
|Lake Nasser, behind the Aswan High Dam. This water all|
flows from rains in Sudan and south.
|Your blogger and the twins. The Band Twins.|
|Hard to tell, but these are police cars ahead of us,|
leading us away from the demonstrations upon our
arrival in Cairo. Traffic was thick as flies.
|Police presence is everywhere today....|
|Bus One at Abdeen Palace! Trouble? Where's the trouble? |
We had a GREAT day today!
|Bus two at Abdeen Palace|
|Letter to King Farouk from Adolf Hitler|
on his accension to the throne
|Similar note from Franklin Roosevelt|
|Everday glasses for the royal class|
|The "old folks" at Abdeen Palace gardens today. With|
our trusty guides and tour managers.
|We all agree we will miss the street scenes of Cairo!|
|If you don't have a car........make do.................|
|What will the future hold? We're|
experiencing history, my friends!
