10-5 & 6-18 Goodbye Egypt hello Jordan
October 5 – One more temple
After leaving our ship and packing up our luggage onto the bus we took a boat ride to see the Temple of Philae. This is reputed to be the burial ground of the god Osiris, god of the underground who often appears with a green face.
We then returned to Cairo for our last night in Egypt. We said goodbye to those flying home or onto Kenya.
October 6 was a travel day. We headed to the airport in Cairo ad flew to Amman Jordan to meet up with our guide, Omar and the 5 who flew in from the states. A good portion of the day was spent at the airport looking for lost luggage. We finally left without it and drove the 3 hours to the Movenpick Petra.
