Down time in Aswan

With project over our last few days in Aswan have been holiday.
Sunrise visit to Abu Simbel on Friday. Great atmosphere of tourists and the dancers from the carnival. So many people the buses travelled in convoy, 4 hours folded in to a seat with nowhere to rest our heads.
Saturday; morning visit to Edfu, temple of Horus and sister temple to Dendara.
Cinema at 6 to see film chosen by Mr Abdulla’s son. Plastic school chairs are the cheap seats and fold down seats at the back with fans.
Evening was spent by the Nile hosted by Marwa and Esra on behalf of the association. Temperature has dropped and is now very pleasant, apparently we have had up to 50 degrees over the course of the week.
Sunday; chill out day by the pool. Then sleeper train to Cairo. Full entourage from the Association to wave us off, memorable.
