Traveling in Egypt

Traveling through Egypt is perhaps the very opposite of trekking or climbing in the Himalaya, but it is beautiful in its own right. The most memorable aspect for me is the contrast of the verdant cultivation of the valley and the starkness of the desert on either side of the river. And of course, the friendliness, the generosity and the curiosity (and the generosity indeed) of the people.
