Asalamu Alaykom,

I will be off on a Spring Break vacation.  It's my first vacation in a year and a half.  I need it!  Inshahallah it will be a good time.

From looking at the picture, can you figure out where we're going?

My mucus membranes aren't really cooperating.  I'm sick for the first time in a long time.  Timing!  It's all in the timing.

Inshahallah, I'll see you all again in a week.

SOMETHING about this pic made me google Aswan and lo and behold I think this is the Philae temple! I know what a long deserved and awaited for vacay feels like so good for you! I am soooo jealous I have never been to Aswan and people say it is the true gem of Egypt and I am sooo dying to go. Have a good vacay!!

Asalamu Alaykom from Aswan!

Yes, you clever EgyptChick, I am here in Aswan. I'm using some of my free 'net time. I realize it seems like a total waste of time to be using technology in such a place of ancient wonders. However, I've toured the Tombs of the Nobles on top of the mountain and I need some air-conditioning and communication with the living.

We saw the temple in the picture yesterday. It was amazing alhumdulillah. I'll write more about everything and show some snaps later.

Thank you, Marie, for your good wishes :) I think your prayers have worked and it's mellowing us out---either that or the hibiscus drink.


I'll tell you later if we got up enough courage for Abu Simbel or not. Leaving the hotel at 3:30 in the morning?!
