Remembering Egypt

Its been 5 years now since my husband and I visited Egypt...but suddenly today I was reminded of our trip in the summer of 2005! Maybe its the intense heat here in Hyderabad, or it could be that I met someone last evening who had been to Egypt last year and we were comparing notes....well, whatever the reason, I dug up a few pics to remind myself of that fabulous trip....! Egypt was amazing, alluring, crowded, chaotic, mysterious, historical and most of all, hot hot hot! But we had an awesome trip and its definitely on the list of places to visit again. Enjoy....
