A Picture for everyone at home!

sunny 40 °C

Hello everyone - it is now almost midnight and we are trying to get to bed for a few hours. Our wake up call tomorrow is at 5:00 AM so we can visit the Valley of the Kings and Queens before it gets scorching hot. Today we visited Karnak Temple and the temperature was 40 degrees at 5:00 PM. A bit hot and a contrast from Canadian weather.

Here is a photo of our group in from of our hotel in Aswan. Hope you enjoy seeing your loved one in the picture.

Our hot air balloon adventure has been cancelled due to an accident here in Luxor. There is a lot to the story - I won't bore you with the details right now. The Aviation Department has shut down all balloon rides - so for those of you wondering about your traveller know that we will not be going in the balloons.

The post today will be short so we can get some sleep! I need to correct some of my facts and figures. It seems our fellow instructor in Calgary (the Geography teacher) is reading the blog. Egypt has a population on 80 million with 20 million of them living in Cairo.

Nice to see everyone! Sorry but not sorry to here the hot air balloon ride was cancelled. I know Jill was really looking forward to it. We actually read about the accident last week already. Sounds like you're having a good time regardless.
