A bit of a dumb question, but what are those wonderful white formations made of? Are they made from eroded salt? Or a kind of rock? Looks very otherworldly.

ps I love this blog and the daily Egypt fix it brings.

Hello there
It obviously wasn't a dumb question because I received several emails asking me the same thing :-).

I've posted a short explanation on the blog today. It seems like a very mundane description for something so alien!

I am very glad that you like the blog - I started it precisely because I liked to home my daily dose of Egypt.

All the best
