Winter Feluccas


Although it's mid to late November, it's still warm enough to enjoy sunset on the Nile. So people rent these wooden sailing boats for an hour or two.

Emanates rest and peace, much needed right now, thanks so much.

Sunset on the Nile...can you imagine how richly exotic that sounds to this small-town Vermonter?

For some reason, I think this would be the ultimate way to relax. It might be my Agatha Christie "Death on the Nile" mentality, but I think this might be a perfect way to end the day.

Wonderful picture; love the tree branch framing. Also, wondering how cold it gets there in the winter. I've never been to Egypt!

Right now we are about 25C/77F during the day and about 15C/60F at night. For the past few years we really haven't gotten much colder than that and have been suffering from long, hot summers. It isn't exactly bone chilling.
