Today we leave Egypt and go to Jordan. We have been at the most wonderful resort at the tip of the Sinai peninsula on the Red Sea. It is beautiful!! Yesterday we went to Mt. Sinai and presumably saw the "burning bush". I have attached a picture of the two of us out by the camels at St. Catherine's Monastery at the base of Mt. Sinai.
Our guides have been absolutely great. Beginning with Samah Gamel ("Sam") in Cairo, continuing with Mohamed Ali in Aswan and on the boat from Aswan through Luxor, and ending with Salah el din Mohamed on the trip to Mount Sinai and St. Catherine's Monastery yesterday.
We have been very impressed with their knowledge and so appreciative of their ability to guide us through the wonderful treasurers of Egypt. We are sorry to be leaving this beautiful country.
Thank you again for the trip of a lifetime. We have just been sitting and talking about all of the great things we saw on the trip. I will send you some additional pictures and more details which I hope will cause others to take this incredible journey.
Combine With your Princess Cruise, Oceanic Cruise, Crystal Cruise, Royal Caribbean or other Mediterranean cruises. If you have only a short time, this is the perfect way. Your few hours in Egypt are filled with exotic sights, sounds, scenes and scents.
