    Impressive place (and impressive ferry catching as well!). Fancy, never heard of a mud map.

    Kom Ombo by night is wonderful. I did almost the same pictures as you did.

    I would have loved to have seen this temple at night. It had a beautiful setting on the Nile.

    Ah, pity you didn't go there during the day, there was a great little village we went to near by... Still, to see it at night must have been amazing!!! :)

    I guess just catching the boat would be a hell of a lot better than just missing it. You did well! Who's quicker in the sand, you or Alex?
