January 30th – House Arrest in Aswan

Far from the paradise we were hoping for, when we arrived at our hotel in Aswan we were met by a police barricade.  We were told that once we checked into our hotel, we would not be allowed to leave.

There was nothing to do but sit by the Nile and drink…


At the train station in Aswan.  We thought our troubles had ended.

But the Nile was beautiful.
