Blogger Jim West is off to Egypt, it seems. I hope we get to travel with him, vicariously. Cairo should be nice at this time of year. He’s also going on a Nile cruise, from Aswan to Luxor. I’ve never been to Aswan myself — although I would like to. I feel faintly envious.
In the mean time, here’s a shot of the west bank of the Nile at Luxor, taken from the Jollie Ville hotel in the evening. Somewhere in that mountain are the tombs of the kings.
