Our host took us down to the Nile. He asked us if we wanted a motor boat or a sail boat. We said sail boat. What an experience. There should have been two sailors to man the boat, but the man who was with us had enough energy for two people.

The other side of the island was a banana plantation.

We got off on an island and the sailor with many skills made us a cup of tea.

There was a beautiful flycatcher on the island.

The city on the other side of the river.

The reeds on the Nile — imagine little Moses floating there!
