EGYPT’S DAILY LIFE – CROSSING THE NILE

THE QUICKEST WAY TO GO FROM THE EAST BANK OF THE NILE IN LUXOR, WHERE THE FAMOUS TEMPLE OF KARNAK IS LOCATED – ATTRACTING THOUSANDS OF VISITORS EVERY YEAR – TO THE WEST BANK TO VISIT HE VALLEY OF THE KINGS IS BY BOAT –  THERE ARE LOTS AND LOTS OF SMALL TOY-LOOKING MOTOR BOATS AND ONE PUBLIC FERRY.

IMG_8100-2THE LITTLE BOATS ARE OPERATED BY THEIR OWNER AND IT IS ADVISABLE TO AGREE ON A PRICE BEFORE YOU BOARD – OF COURSE THE PRICE DEPENDS ON WHERE YOU GO AND HOW GOOD YOUR NEGOTIATION SKILLS ARE.  JUST  CROSSING THE RIVER SHOULD COST NO MORE THAN 10 Egyptian pounds ($2)

THE FERRY IS MOSTLY USED BY LOCALS AND IT IS  ABOUT 15 CENTS – TOURISTS PAY 70 CENTS.  I PREFERRED TO TAKE  THE FERRY; IT MADE ME FEEL LIKE I WAS PART OF  EGYPT’S DAILYL IFE!

More from Egypt soon
