  Washing dishes in the Nile
by ycnan

Favorite thing: Take a cruise on the Nile. You will feel as though you have gone back in time thousands of years. You see farmers using oxen to work the fields. You hear calls for prayers in the towns along the way. You stop and visit ancient temples.

Fondest memory: Several scenes stand out, but three in particular: a drawbridge where we waited for a donkey to cross; a puppy in the temple at Esna playing with the guard; and women washing dishes and babies in the Nile, while behind them, their house had a satillite dish. There were many, many more memorable scenes and experiences.
