Day 3

Aswan botanical gardens reached by boat in the morning. The island was given to Lord Horatio Kitchener in the 1890′s when he was commander of the Egyptian army. He turned the island in to a botanical garden, importing plants from the Far East, India and parts of Africa.
We returned from the island via felucca and viewed the Nilometer which was used to measure the water level of the river to determine the taxes. The higher the level, the better the harvest and the higher the tax!
Training was leadership interspersed with communication. Less girls today and only 2 brownies so it was much easier to run.
After training we were taken to the house of a friend of one of the guides for henna tattoos.
