That's about as thorough a write up of Death Valley as I've ever seen. It is a very desolate place and the temperature extremes are amazing. In one late winter day we went from snow to 115 F. The heat, especially in the summer, is dangerous. Don't visit in the summer. Visit it in the winter. The scenery is beautiful and it's definitely worth seeing.

Yes, it's really amazing how colorful and varied desert plants can be. Did you also see the blog from a few weeks ago on the "Spine Garden" of cacti in Arizona? It's at https://www.travelgumbo.com/blo...zona-s-sonora-desert

A better class of cockroach on board, too, doubtless 🤣🤣 we used a Glasgow built little old ferry boat with cabins added; it was rescued from Port Said I believe. The bugs didn't spoil anything though - they live there, after all. The teeth-gritter always came soon 'How deep is the Nile here, Bob ?' Er. . . er

In many things the old ways are sometimes better. When Europeans began (19th c.?) outfitting dahabiyas for leisurely Nile Cruises, they'd sink it first to clear out a variety of vermin. Too bad you didn't know that good old trick.

I read about that one - def a Victorian lady ¿a thousand miles up the nile? The odd highly colourful phrase in today's usage too ! 😆😱 BTW 'our' boat was a bit big to do that I guess, took 18-20 plus 6 crew, a jolly punt, though !
