Fishwrecked in Egypt
Well after years of planning, my wife and I finally made out trip to Egypt recently.
I have got to say that it was an even better trip than I had hoped for.
Egypt is a fantastic place. The people were great. Really helpful and friendly. The scenery was incredible. It is amazing to see how such an advanced civilisation was really created around a very thin strip of land that sits on both sides of the Nile River.
And as for Cairo. It is a crazy city, but I would go there again tomorrow. 15 million people, 5 million cars, 24 hours a day traffic jams, but it has an incredible buzz.
It is amazing to see how close the Great Pyramids at Giza and the Sphinx is to the city. The Sphinx is a lot smaller than you would picture, it is roughly the size of a bus.
The trip up the Nile on a cruise boat was a great experience, as was the visit to the temples and tombs at Aswan and Luxor. The artwork in the tombs was incredible and some of the carvings and paintings are so well preserved it looks like it was only done recently. There are plenty of yummy mummys in Egypt. The young egyptian ladies are stunning. Sorry, but customs (my wife) wouldn't let me bring you one back.
Matt (Mako). Unfortunately you cant' take cameras into the mummy sections at the Egyptian Museum.
Below are just a few of the hundreds of pics I took. I hope you don't mind me posting them, as I know they are not fishing related, but I thought some of you may be interested.
All the best, Colin Hay
