Memories of Egypt

Along with the rest of the world, The Aussie and I have been watching the events unfolding in Egypt on television. This is a new chapter in their history. We had the privilege of travelling to Egypt several years ago and met many lovely people. We wish them well.

The crowds at the Sphinx were overwhelming

  1. Thanks for sharing these photos of your trip on such an historic day... they're wonderful to view!

  2. Gorgeous pictures! My dear friend Thom went a year or so ago and all of the turmoil has hit him hard. I think I'll send him over here for more happy pictures to look at :)
