Wow! I love those trees with the red blooms!

Here is a picture of a beautiful island I took on the boat ride back from the Nubian village to Aswan.

Boat Trips out from Aswan

We took several boat trips out from the city of Aswan, and I was never sure if I was still in Aswan or not! So, I thought I'd build a page for the bigger region. This is a picture I took from one of the boat trips of a water buffalo tied up along the banks of the Nile. Our guide said many liked to drink the sweet milk of the water buffalo, but I didn't get a chance to try any.

A Building in the Nubian Village We Visited

I loved how colorful everything was in the village!

    If you get a chance to see proper Whirling Dervishes (a big group all at once), go for it, they are very impressive!
