Egypt 2!

The next day we went out to the countryside to visit with the Shaaban's extended family and have dinner with them. It was so fun to be out in the countryside and to meet so many wonderful people. I even got to ride a donkey...
We stopped to take some pics of the Nile during the day. It is one of the most breathtaking places I have ever seen! So lush and beautiful and green and ancient! You can just feel the history and power in this place!

This is an island in the middle of the Nile. This is a Christian church on the island. It is only accessible by boat. So beautiful!

Just casually driving by the pyramids... Pfft. Crazy!!!

I am supposedly the first woman to drive a microbus in Egypt. :)

Flowers that Ahmed gave me outside a mosque while we waited for the men to pray. I love Arabs...
