    Medinat al-Fayoum

    The Al-Fayoum Oasis is the largest Oasis of Egypt and at 100KM the nearest oasis to reach from Cairo.
    The town of the oasis is Medinat al-Fayoum, a crowded town with 400.000 inhabitants.
    In the centre of the town opposite the tourist office are four models of water wheels.
    In the oasis are still 200 water wheels of this kind.

    I took a two-day weekend trip to Luxor, south of Cairo. It's about 1 hour flight from Cairo. Luxor has often been called the worlds greatest open air museum. The number and preservation of the monuments in the Luxor area are unparalleled anywhere else in the world that know of. There are three different areas, consisting of the City of Luxor on the East side of the Nile, the town of Karnak just north of Luxor and Thebes, which the ancient Egyptians called Waset, which is on the west side of the Nile across from Luxor.

  • Side trips. Two places that I...

    by Blair Written Aug 24, 2002

    Side trips. Two places that I did not have time to visit but understand are wonderful places to visit is Alexandria and Aswan. In Luxor we had a guide by the name of Nubi, an excellent, knowlegable local man. Any tourist place in Luxor seemed to know him.
    Sharm El Sheik is a great place for scuba diving, snorkling and sun bathing. Great places to eat, a wonderful place just to lay back, relax and let all you cares disappear.

    Opera house garden.

    A place of relaxation inside the 8 million metropolis, right in front of Taharir bridge in the opposite shore of Cairo Museum.
    Great cappucino.

    Mudbrick home in an Egyptian Village on the Nile River, not unlike housing used by common Egyptians three thousand years ago.
