St. George's church - a coptic christian church in the Coptic quarter of Cairo
The coptic cemetry
This is the hugely impressive temple that the Egyptians borrowed US$40 million to relocate for a distance of 200m so that it would not become flooded by lake Nasser (as a result of the contruction of a massive dam.) Apparently the airport tax you pay upon arrival in Egypt goes towards paying off the loan!!
We had to get up at 3am for a four hour bus ride in convoy to get to this place. They only have one convoy a day so hordes of tourists agglomerate all at the same time. I wonder if the place would have been even more impressive if there hadn't been so many people...
Our camel Micky Mouse
Beacuse I was a bit delayed after trying to find a suitable bush for an impromptu toilet stop, Graham and I had to share a camel as there weren't quite enough to go round.
Dinner in the Nubian viallage after our camel ride. A Nubian family cooked their food for us - yummiest were small barbecued fresh fish they'd caught from the Nile and marinated with garlic.
