Desert/Nile Contrast!

Here is a scene I took one morning as we headed out on a boat from Aswan to visit a Nubian village. I thought this picture captured the contrast of what it was like right along the banks of the Nile compared to the desert that makes up the great majority of land area in Egypt.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful and so much history!
  • Cons:Again... it was hot !
