A true highlight of any off the beaten path Egypt tour is a camel ride to San Simeon monastery – up in the hills of West bank Aswan. We started our trek in the morning and gave the camels a little sustenance to start the journey. From San Simeon – we even rode the camels 1/2 hour across the hill to Qubbet el Hawa – ancient tombs of officials and Nomarchs from the Old and Middle Kingdom… an intrepid desert adventure! Special thanks to our band of female camels: Coraline, Lolo, Cinderella, King, Lolita, Concorde and a few other fine girls… Yasmina the camel (featured here eating our apples) refused to stand up to take the journey and I had to switch to Coraline. (Perhaps one too many apples!)
