Wow! This is the first time I have ever blogged. I hope it is going to work. Just thought I'd add a brief postscript to Rachel's itinerary. We have changed hotel in Aswan to the Memnon, because the other place failed to respond to email. And the temperatures in Cairo, Luxor and Aswan at the moment are as follows: 34 degrees, 39 degrees, 45 degrees. What on earth are we up to?!
More blogging when our journey gets started.
