Rememberances of one of my favorite places to vacation.

Camels, ass drawn wagons and cars
pass along Cairo's crowded streets.
To the north Alexandria
Nile's delta and the open sea.
Across the Nile, Giza plateau
with tall pyramids and the Sphinx.
We ride camels on wide Giza
then walk down into Khufa's tomb.

A day at Cairo's museum
a night laser show at Sphinx.
Couscous with dinner and a show
where belly dancers gyrate so.
Beautiful cruise ships navigate
down mother Nile's wide flowing course.
From the decks you see fertile plain
a mere green strip in the desert.

After Memphis stepped pyramid
its on to ancient Thebes, Luxor.
Karnak Temple by day and night
obolisks, spires, columned temples.
By pharaohs of all dynasties
entombed in valleys king and queen.
Queen Hatshepsut's temple complex
with bright colors, tiled collonade.

Farther down river Kom Obo
and its crocodilian mummies.
Then disembarking by new Aswan
to take a train back uo Nile's bank.
You ride in a comfort of old
as in Agatha Christie's works.
Once more enjoying modern streets
until we leave Egypt behind.

Spent four wonderful days there once. My friend from Thailand spent the whole time trying to get out of the country until he found that his roll of American dollars was welcome in the Egyptian pound only bazaar. There was ancient dust everywhere and a bread riot in the square just after we left. Has anything changed?

Phew! I feel as though I have been there myself. I am swamped in visuals and gripped by that feeling of 'holiday over'.
