All summer, I fought the urge to blog about a hope and a dream I had in the planning, terrified that if I made the plan public, it would fall through, like so many others have. Call me superstitious. So I wrote nothing about it.
That is no longer necessary.
The hope and the dream became reality. On October 31 (yep, Halloween), my husband and I flew to Egypt for a two week tour and cruise up the Nile. We flew home on November 13 (yep, the thirteenth). If I was really that superstitious, I wouldn't have laughed about those dates.
So now I get to post highlights of the trip.
|Though this photo was taken in 2021, it could've happened 100 yrs ago.|
|The traffic and pollution in Cairo were a shock.|
|The original color on the columns of Karnak struck me breathless.|
|Seeing Luxor Temple after dark is the way to go. Cool and beautiful.|
|Typical street market, this one in Luxor.|
|Selfie from the sundeck of our cruise boat, MS Medea. El-Qurn, the pyramidal mountain beneath which you'll find the Valley of the Kings, is over my left shoulder.|
