Cruising the Nile from Luxor to Aswan - Part 3

(Think you may have missed something? Blogger and I limit the size of this blog when you enter it at the top. Since the next several posts have lot of pictures, you probably will only see about five posts in total. Click on the BLOG ARCHIVE in the left column to find previous posts.)

In addition to watching the people, there is plenty of other scenery between Luxor and Aswan.

The buildings in the passing villages provide interesting views.

The contrast between the green area next to the Nile and the desert, not far away, demonstrates the importance of water in this part of the world.

Some animals are hard at work moving some of that water.

With a little water, these banana trees grow well here.

On a previous trip, I had photographed the Wadi El-Rayan waterfall near Fayoum. That is reported to be the tallest waterfall in Egypt. I had the chance to capture another waterfall here. (That is the Wadi El-Rayan waterfall on the right.)

You know the cruise is about finished as you glimpse this modern lighted bridge in the distance. It marks your arrival at Aswan.
