Muhafazat Aswan

Muhafazat Aswan is the name of the administrative region of the Nile that is governed from the city of Aswan.
There are some important tourist sights within the region that you wouldn't want to list under Aswan due to the distances involved.
Away from Aswan much of the region is very rural with agriculture being the main industry.
Along the Nile there are many sights that inspire us travellers.

Tuk Tuks

In certain towns within the region tuk tuks seem to be the preferred mode of transport. These little Asian scooters with a built on cab have really taken off here. I'm sorry I didn't get the chance to take a ride in one.

The Nile

As you get closer to Aswan travelling along the Nile the river takes on a different complexion. Here it is more like the Nile of your imagination with the golden desert sands in the background rather than rocky schist more prevalent downstream.

    Ok, I'm getting packed. While I am only visiting Cairo, Alexandria and Sharm El Sheik this time around, you have me convinced that Luxor needs considerable time and attention - just NOT in August!

    Hi Andrew, Interesting that Kom Ombo has paintings/heiroglphs that look similar to those in Luxor and yet are Greco-Roman. Maybe they liked the style. I do. Thanks, Mike
