Travel: A view from the Nile (
A two-part day by day account of travelling from the U.S. to Cairo and then taking a cruise up the Nile from Aswan via Abu Simbel: "Aswan appeared much cleaner and more prosperous than Cairo. While still very poor by Western standards, there were some nice parks, tolerable roads and clearly the town was booming with tourist traffic. Dozens of cruise ships sat at the riverfront." See the above page for the first part of the story. The second part will appear next week.
