Wow is all I can say. The small motor boat ride from my Rihanna Dahabiya was just beautiful. We motored slowly through the beautiful waters and winding channels of the Aswan end of the Nile area. Little island sanctuaries of wildlife and lovely waters. Finally arriving to the edge of the desert to be met by Nubian leader and many camels to choose from for the 20 minute camel ride to the village. It was like just in the movies. Slopping sand dunes right down to the river's edge and riding a camel along the ridges with fantastic views of the river Nile. What an wonderful experience - so many memories and so many fantastic photos (even if I do say so myself). My guide and I arrived at the residence of a local who hosted us and provided deliciously cold Hibiscus Tea (made with spring bottled water) and Turkish coffee and some local snacks. Interesting..............I was brave and tried it as one should! We were allowed to wonder up to the roof top area of our host's house and then we walked around the village. It was a quiet time of year but never the less a few people around. We returned to the cruise boat Rihanna Dahabiya by motor boat. Also just had to get a henna tattoo (only lasts a couple of weeks). The artist was our host's wife - what lovely faces Nubian women have. The whole visit to the village is something I will remember for the rest of my life.
