Egypt – Sep. 1990

We traveled to Egypt during “Desert Storm” in 1990 — so many tourists had cancelled their trips that we had a private tour (from Cairo through Abu Simbel) with our own Egyptologist guide and driver! It’s very humbling to view beautiful color images that were painted inside King Tut’s tomb, among others, 5000 years ago. Staying at the ‘The Old Cataract Hotel’ on the banks of the river Nile in Aswan was, like this trip, unforgettable!
