The SS Misr. Don't ask me to pronounce it!!
The main stairs. Has something of the Titanic about it, doesn't it?
The dining room. Lovely.
Tuesday 2 February 2010.
After breakfast we met our guides, Anwar and Mohamed, at the welcome meeting. Mohamed was also a keen birdwatcher it turned out. We were assigned to Anwar, a charming and obliging person.
Our guides. Anwar, left. Mohamed, right.
Lynne and me at temple of Horus, Edfu. The person who took this photo (who shall remain nameless, she knows who she is!!) cut off the head of the statue!!
Senegal thick-knee, a very special bird. Looks very similar to a stone curlew, which is a summer visitor to a few parts of the UK.
Purple heron, so close. A lovely adult.
Our turn in the lock.
