Welcome to Alaska!

We get welcomed to Alaska when ever Egyptians find out that we are Americans.  It’s been as hot as 120 degrees in some places.  Not fun at all.  We are also one of few Americans traveling to Egypt.

Amy and I have done a lot in the last two weeks.  We’ve finished up traveling the Nile Valley and now have what is called “Pharonic Phatigue”.  We are now resort hopping and working on our tans – even me!

Here are some highlights:
Getting to go into one of the Great Pyramids of Giza
Camel Riding
Heat Stroke at Karnak Temple
Two nights floating down the Nile on a motor-less boat (felucca)
Swimming in the Nile
Sweating it out in the UN-airconditioned Egyptian Museum
44 degree C sun scorching heat
Snorkeling the Red Sea

Sorry for the long time between blogs.  Amy and I have been running from one air-conditioned place to another and sometimes all we want to do is rest after being the in the heat.

We’re heading to Dahab – the backpackers place of Egypt – and Amy leaves in a week.  I leave for Dubai soon after that.

    Why do they welcome you to Alaska? I don’t get it.

    My aunt, uncle and their two daughters went to Egypt in May, and seeing a picture of my uncle on a camel has basically made my year. 🙂

    Hope you’re enjoying yourselves!
