Egypt - Day 9 - Souk time

Town for water and a walk to the station (now nearly complete). Looks good in a grandiose style. Checked out the train times to Aswan – 7. 8 and 9.30 (35 EG one way first class). The trains are absurdly cooled in first class. You almost need winter clothing to endure the journey.

Tennis in afternoon. They're adding two new courts that will be ready on teh day we leave. Fun doubles with Gil, Carl, Ken, Danny, Miguel and myself.

A shop in the new souk – four headscarf’s for Joseph (12 EG each) and some scarves for Gil (30 each)then across by local ferry and Tuts for lunch. Back to hotel.
