EGYPT – ANOTHER VISIT?

…………….yes another visit, my third visit! …. and this time I am not going through a travel agent, but, with the help of some friends, have made my own travel arrangements and reservations.

I will spend 9 days in Luxor in Upper Egypt, where the Valley of the Kings is,

and then go to Cairo for 11 days,

Cairo – view of the city

with a side trip to Alexandria. No, I will not be writing my Blog while I am in Egypt  – I can’t waste time writing when there is so much to look at and learn, and  PHOTOGRAPH – but I will share all of it when I come back – you will see new Blogs at the end of November.

When I made my reservations I was not aware that I am lucky to be there at the time of Eid-al Adha, the most important celebration of the year for Muslims all over the world. It commemorates Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son Ishmael, before God provided him with a ram to sacrifice instead. The celebrations last four days, closing down even the Government. I am very excited to be there and to share this event.

To all my Muslim friends, and Muslims all over the world

EID MUBARAK?

MUCH more from Egypt when I come back
