Last Tuesday we returned from Egypt, after one week of cruise on the Nile between Luxor and Aswan and another week at the Red Sea – with a day trip to Cairo.

It was fantastic. There was, of course, a lot to marvel – from ancient times as well as the present. The people were very friendly. But Egypt is also a place of contrasts: between the wealthy tourist and the rich local upper class on one side and poverty of the many on the other. Between a glorious past and a problematic present.

In other words: a great experience but also food for thought. Pictures from the trip will be posted on Flickr as time permits 😉

  1. Velkommen hjem! Jeg glæder mig til at dine billeder kommer ud – det bliver spændende at se hvordan en pyramide kan ligne en fabrikshal og Nilens vande et skylleanlæg 🙂 … Hils Jytte, hvis hun skulle komme forbi, mens du er ved computeren.

  2. Hej Per

    Det her billede er dedikeret til dig:
