Dear friends and watchers,
I hope you're all well, I arrived back yesterday
I had a wonderful time in Jordan and Egypt, left with a heavy heart; there was so much more to see there, I will defenitely go back some day. I have just cleared my inbox but DA's spam lock has kicked in and It'll take me some time to catch up with the hundreds of deviations left. I had to delete all the journals unfortunately there were too many
Jordan was fantastic, dramatic desert scapes and mountains the people were very welcoming and friendly, I felt a lot more comfortable there than I did in Egypt, we visited port Aqaba and then 1/5 of Petra and its epic ruined temples, breathtaking place.
From Jordan we travelled to Egypt's port El-Sokhna from there we visited Cairo, Giza Pyramids & Sphinx, Saqqara pyramids, Memphis and tombs then we headed south to Port Safaga and from there we visited the temple complex of Queen Hatshepsut, memon statues, the Valley of the Kings and finally Luxor and Karnak temples and then sailed to Sharm el sheik and back home. Egypt was fascinating, generous people I got a free egypt souvenir pencil, a good luck scarab. I was also "ambushed" by really unpleasant aggresive sales person, one dressed me as an arab and dumped infront of a camel for a picture and charged me for that despite heavily refusing and another sneaked two chunks of alabaster in my bag and a carving and charged me for that, seems "no" doesnt work there. The ancient ruins were overwhelming, there's no other words, I took over 1900 pics in all, I will be posting them soon but I am still processing them all.
