Re: Walk the Nile and Take Awhile

Rob, how did I miss this when you posted it? This is possibly the most interesting article I've read for quite a while. I'm pleased they'll be filming it and hope to see it one day. While I'm up for an adventure from time to time watching a film of this one is the closest I'll get to doing it. Thanks!

I love these little slices of daily life, no matter what country, what city. Community rituals are so important to our being communities, not just populations! Thanks, Island Man!

Sounds like a great trip! I'd love to hear more. Egypt is always fascinating but seemed so far and complicated. How did you find Abdul? How did you get your arrangements, etc?

For the first time in 25 plus years booked a package via Sonesta cruises down the Nile and he was our guide for just 3 of us. Abdul is very knowledgeable with excellent English. Several more posts can be found on at The Grey Traveller and an article about Sonesta . Always happy to answer questions if you have any more.

Thanks for the journey, Mac. Yes, it is sad that tourist numbers are down as there is so much to see. We were there in January'13 and loved every minute. Such a fascinating country and with friendly people too. Forget what you hear in the news, just go!

Thanks Rob. I am so glad we heard about it from another traveling couple when we were in the south of France. It was one of the reasons that we decided to head to Turin. So glad we did. Hope you get to visit one day.
