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.

Egypt and Jordan Tour:
We had a wonderful morning yesterday in Petra - what a magical place. The weather was perfect and our Bedouin guide was charming. His name was Hani, is 92 years old and his youngest child is 11! If anyone is going to Petra, ask to have Hani as your guide. We rode a horse in and a donkey out. In the afternoon we drove to Wadi Rum for a jeep ride in the desert made famous by Lawrence of Arabia.
Today we drove to Jeresh for a tour. It as the best preserved Roman ruins anywhere. We are in our hotel in Amman for nite. Tomorrow after a morning tour of Amman, we will be driven to the Dead Sea where we have a day room until our pickup for the airport and our first flight home at 3AM. We will be home Sat. nite. This trip has been wonderful - altho exhausting at times. Lisa and I are at the point where we can't absorb another thing.
Looking forward to seeing many of you soon.
