In the 1960s the dramatic, ancient Pharaonic temple Abu Simbel was threatened by the rising waters blocked by the new Aswan High Dam. First Lady Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy provided crucial support for the mammoth rescue project. Without her help, Abu Simbel might have been lost. Times change, leaders come and go, but some acts of support and generosity are remembered through the decades. First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy loved Egypt, and Egypt still loves her.

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.
