Then we went on a quick boat ride to an island where a temple of Isis has been replaced to because its previous island was set underwater after the first Aswan dam was built.
And then we went to the new High Dam of Aswan. Honestly this was not really worth a visit. We got of, looked at the Nasser lake and the dam and left again.
For Monday you could book an extra trip to Abu Simbel. Surely there is another really exciting temple but another 4 hours ride by bus per way for about 90€ and getting up at 2.30 a.m. was nothing that attracted us. So we stayed on the ship and went for a short walk in Aswan later this morning.
After this walk in Aswan and so far Egypt doesn’t feel like a country for me. The sights are great but People try to sell you things all the time and as a woman I don’t feel, well not unsafe, but not so good. You do have women on the street but far more man. And women seem only to shop if at all while men are selling or sitting in cafes and I feel like they don’t want me there and look at me like a stupid tourist woman that you can treat without respect. Nobody ever says something bad but I think: you would never follow one of your women and get on their nerves so why are you do it with me? But I’m not sure if this is because I’m a woman or a tourist or both.
