Aswan as a tourist

Another day off, after another late night travelling; training starts tomorrow.
Temperature about 43′!
Evening visit to the Nubia Museum, which is a reminder of the history and culture of the Nubians, whose settlement was flooded by Lake Nasser after the building of the dams.
Then a chance to wander round the souq and purchase some souvenirs. The souq in Aswan has a distinctive scent of herbs and spices. Aswan is also famous for its peanuts and we were lucky enough to sample a handful each as sourced by Mr Abdulla. We bartered for papyrus and postcards and Helen and I were given scarab beetles for free from one trader, no obligation to buy, so we didn’t!
