Khan El Khalili Ba¬zaar. Mostly tourist goods, aggressive vendors shoving their goods at you cajoling to buy from them but Egyptian cotton is really good

Visited a carpet factory where, of course, Bernie bought something. He was a very good tourist. All the fabric is naturally dyed. The worker obviously has had his picture taken by many eager travelers.

Alexandria Library - largest reading room in the world. The resources are amazing. Could have stayed for hours

The Nile as seen from our cabin window. Watching the scenery glide by as the boat moves is one of the most relaxing activities in the world.

  3. Lindsay says:

    Love the pictures. Why not one of you on the camel?

  4. Mae Clair says:

    You really have a gift for photography. Great pics! And I would have sent the spouse on the camel while I stayed safely on the ground too!

  5. Those are awesome, Sue! Thank you for posting these. 🙂 The library and the bazaar were my favourite 🙂 Would love to visit both… a wealth of knowledge in one, a wealth of goods in the other 😉

    these Pictures are Brilliant Sue… you have a good eye girl…
    I love the picture of the lone ranger on a camel…. lol… I noticed Bernie wore sun glasses, was that to hide the fear in his eyes Sue?….lol.. and where’s the shot of him decamping the camel.. ahahah
    your pictures of the Nile are dreamy indeed Sue… loved them …
    the City shots are awesome, show life there as it is, busy and bustling, with a touch of the tourist aspects of the city too…
    But I have a question… Why is that guy nailing the Papyrus to a bit of wood??… ahahah
    I bet you thought it was Christmas in their library Sue… its a wonder you didn’t move in there and then girl…. lol
    What did it for me was your pictures of the pyramids and the sphinx, but the Ramses II statue is the best of the lot… its looks brand new… awesome indeed…
    thank you into such a brilliant insight to a place I have never been to Sue.. xxx

      the pic of Bernie was not taken by me. I do have a shot of him decamping the beast lol. He wasn’t nailing the papyrus to a bit of wood but demonstrating how it’s made. Silly boy. No one would be able to resist the library. But the tour had to go on. Ah you like old stuff. The statue and the tombs do look almost new. They take care with them so not to deteriorate them

    Great pics! I love the one of your husband riding the camel. Awesome! Glad you made it home safe. See ya tomorrow for WWW!!

  8. Blue fooldude says:

    awesome pics! Would love to visit that library! Don’t think I would like the vendors pushing their wares at me. The best part would be drifting down the Nile watching the scenery drift by! 🙂

  9. Wow Sue! I’m so jealous!!!! 🙂

    LOVE the money shot! Oh this must have been a fabulous trip. You lucky lady. I’ve read so many archaeological reports on the finds there, and there’s Alexander, of course, and Caesar and Cleopatra. Hypatia of Alexandria and the tragedy of the burning of the library. So glad they have such a nice one now.
    Thanks for sharing the photos.

  11. Love the photos! Is that fog or smog in the first picture? Ha ha! And bernie on a camel is priceless!

  12. Doris Emmett says:

    Oh my…these were just beautiful…all of them…right up to the “money-shot”!!!

  13. Seems to have been a wonderful trip, thanks for sharing the photos!

    Your wonderful pictures took me right back to the heat and noise of Cairo–and it’s been almost 15 years. The first picture of the traffic–my God, I remember being in fear for my life whenever I got in a car. And the bazaar–only wish I’d had enough money then to be a “good tourist.” I envy you your rug. They are gorgeous. You’ve made me want to go back. Did you get a shot of your ship?

Aw come on say something....
