We had lunch and then the others arrived back. Seems like Abu Simbel was absolutely wonderful.
This afternoon our boat set off for Kom Ombo. It is so lovely to sit on the pool deck as we sail along the Nile, sipping on a delicious cocktail called “Egyptian Mist”.
We also sampled the local brew and found it to be very good. Sakara was my beverage of choice.
What I loved about the cruise is that there is always something to see on the banks. People working on their plots, donkeys or camels grazing, quaint little homes. All along the way there was lovely green scenery with the desert a little further back.
All the temples had some sort of market nearby
After supper it was time for the Galabea Party. We had bought galabeas during the day at the little shop on board the boat. Those of us who wanted to, gathered in the lounge for the party. The staff on board the boat played traditional instruments and danced in a conga, hauling passengers up to join them, soon everyone was joining in. Wael and the other tour guide organised various games. It was a lot of fun.

Tonight as we sleep we will be sailing to Edfu.
