When we were in Aswan, we have the fortunate luck to be able to go to the Nubian Village just a little north of town. It was an interesting contrast to that of the Arab countrymen.

Hosni Mobarak actually made it mandatory for the Nubian school children to go to school, so it was neat to see them headed off with their spongebob squarepants backpacks...

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
