Our Egyptian Adventure

This is Gabriel, attired for the desert, on Day Five of our Egyptian adventure. Yes! This involved lots of excitement, overnight trains, feluccas, camel riding, carriage riding, bazaar mooching – along with the Pyramids, Sphinx and dear old Tutankhamun himself.
As one of our party said “What a guy!” We went with four other families, none of whom we knew before – but after you have shared an overnight train from Cairo to Aswan frankly you kjnow more about these people than some of your best friends. The children had a blast. Did they take any homework with them? Are you kidding! But they learned how to read hieroglyphics and slept under the African sky on a boat. Egypt was empty and peaceful, much more so than London this summer.
