Aswan

Our first trip in Aswan was at the Unfinished Obelisk, which costs 35LE for the entrance.  But before we went to the site, we watched a video presentation about the history of the Unfinished Obelisk.    It would be better if all the monuments will have the same theater where they could present the history before going to the site, temple or monument.

We passed by the Aswan High Dam in going to Philae,  but it was hard to take pictures because  the van can’t stop in the middle of the road.  The entrance fee in Philae Temple was 50LE, plus the cost of the boat ride.  The houses on the mountain are like those in Hora Village in Greece.

Last was our trip to the Temples of Abu Simbel which costs 80LE for the entrance.   The rock formation and the Lake Nasser have stunned me.   I can never forget the “Billy Jean” song which me and my sister together with our German friends sang during the videoke night.  The historical monuments, nature, food & friendly people made our Aswan trip truly unforgettable.
