Nile River Cruise


When David, of David’s hostel, where we stayed in Aswan booked us a three-day, two-night Nile cruise for $100 each I was expecting that we would be sleeping under a tarp and rowing during the day. And that was still OK with me! But when we boarded the ship I found a five-star all inclusive! Food galore and a fancy room to boot. It was too chilly to swim in the pool but we savoured our time doing nothing more strenuous than watching banana plantations drift by from comfortable loungers on the sundeck and going back and forth to the sumptuous buffet!

Trail food rations are going to be a shock once we get to Jordan. 😥

When we went through some locks, vendors rowed fast to keep up while trying to sell their wares. They would throw up packages four decks above. Their aim was perfect!
