Egypt was a place of many contrasts…horrible poverty and disease and yet beautiful ancient monuments. I am very glad we went and it was a profound experience which changed me. I appreciate more the beauty of life and how it contrasts with the not so beautiful things. It makes me appreciate how much I have and how lucky I am.
Hopefully these pictures can show you some of the beauty that we saw and how amazing it was to be there. We took a cruise up the Nile from Cairo, visited the Valley of the Kings, Memphis, the Valley of the Queens, saw hot air balloons in the morning over the Nile, took a train from Thebes to Cairo and so much more. Hope you enjoy these pictures, Cheers, Michele
