Egypt is a place full of rich history.

Hey everyone,

It is amazing here in Egypt. Today we have been to Abu Simbel to the Ramses Temples.
Currently Im in Aswan on the river Nile, I'm travelling with my mum and we are about to join our nile cruise today.
Yesterday was camel riding and a visit to a nubian village after an overnight train from Cairo.
I have been overwhelmed by the scale of the monuments seen so far. The Egyptian culture transverses such a long period of time. I feel priveleged to have experienced it here.
I would well recommend a trip here. The only down side as I have seen so far is that so many monuments and artefacts have been taken by foreign countries over the years. Its really time many of these were returned to their rightful locations.



Internet cafes are few and far between so I thought I would post a brief snippet today.
will post more of Germany, Paris and this Egypt trip when i get back up to the UK next week :-)
