I visited Aswan twice in 1983 and in 1999.

In november 1997 the Nubia Museum opened its doors. Only this museum maked it worth to visit Aswan again. It's a really must see.

It was also nice to see the known places again. So we made again the lovely boatride to the temple of Phylae and we went for a second time to the unfinished obelisk.

The scenery of the Nile with the many islands and the shopping streets were still amazing.

    A fascinating page! The views on the dam are fine. I liked the unfinished obelisk. I am always interested when you show that Egypt is not only ancient E. On that account, he St Simeon monastery is a good landmark.

    Hey, ali, you won't belive it, but we visited exactly the same Nubian house. And we were also treated with tea (karkade) and some home made bread. Only this time master of the house showed us around.

    Great page of Aswan!!! What a pity I didn't visit the Nubian Mesuem. I think Abu Simbel is a must-see though, it's greater than the pyramids.
