In the afternoon we visit a Mosque and then head out to a vantage point overlooking the Cataracts to watch the sun set. Later we go back into Aswan town for a stroll throught the Spice Market and buy a Galabaya each.

  Day three and a very early rise for a flight out to Abu Simbel. By 10.30am we were back in Aswan. In the afternoon we took a Feluca ride across the river to Kitchener Island. The end of our day started off with a 'Galabaya Night' ...
