It was seriously amazing day. Mohamed and his relative took us on a boat cruise through the Nile. We paid 150 EP for a whole day and that was a really good price. That boat trip was brilliant –Nile breeze in that heat was very pleasant and relaxing. It was lovely to lie down and feel that gentle wind.
On our „Nile Day” we also explored:
1) Aswan Botanic Garden – The place was given to Lord Kitchener, who was commander of Egyptian Army in 1890’s. He had passion for stunning palms and plants, so he transformed the entire island into Botanic Garden and imported plants India and other parts of Africa
2) Old Cataract – We didn’t explore that place, but we were able to see it up-close. Old Cataract is a luxurious hotel, where Agatha Christie was writing her novel Death on the Nile
3) Elephantine Island – We were discovering the ancient Nubian City Ruins
