Luxor, Egypt

Dubai was awesome and I bought some lovely gold jewellery but I am certainly over bargaining and shopping in bazaars. Egypt is wonderful - I am learning arabic every chance I get - i love the language and know just enough phrases to be understood - if not then I get out my trusty pencil and paper and draw what I want. The people here are so warm and welcoming. I haven't had one seconds hesitation going out alone or travelling in taxis but ..... they drive like lunatics here. There are no road rules really - they drive in the centre of the road or on the footpath and my taxi driver stopped in the middle of the road with cars whizzing past us because I wanted to take a photo. There are 20mil ppl in Cairo alone - no wonder it is so crazy. I am presently in Luxor where we are going on hot air balloon ride in the morning and then cruising the Nile to Answar where we are going to Abu Simbel Temple.
Having a wonderful time but missing the family and home - ready to head for the safety of my country now.

hugs and kisses
