Tuesday, April 3: The Nile. It holds lovely memories for me, memories that are all wrapped up Egypt: chaos, dusty streets, honking horns, the pyramids, camels, the Sphinx, the felucca, the Grand Cafe, miserable heat, a brief romance with an Egyptian brain surgeon and a pathetic attempt to learn Arabic.
I spent a month in Cairo in July of 2007, and though my first inclination was to immediately get on a plane and return home, it took less than a week for me to fall in love with Egypt. One of my favorite things was to take a felucca on the Nile at sunset. These photos were shot in July 2007 on the Nile, the major north-flowing river in northeastern Africa, generally regarded as the longest river in the world at 4,130 miles.
