Sun, Oct 24: Aswan, Egypt
Elephantine Island is in the middle of the Nile river. There’s a small house with some artifacts on display, but the main reason to go here is to see the large, precision made granite box.
There was lunch served on the cruise ship prior to leaving, but after 4 days of the same food on the Nile Cruise ship, albeit delicious, I needed a change. I saw a McDonalds at the dock so I ditched the ship lunch and got some good ole American fast food. Sure hit the spot.
We visited another Nile River island that had a temple, called Philae Island
