As our Galabaya Night progresses, we sail back to Kom Ombo reaching there about 11.00pm. A newly wed Egyptian couple come on board to join the fun before we all go ashore to sample the delights of a Sheesha and Turkish Coffee.

  We spend most of the next day sailing back to Luxor, pausing at Esna first for the bridge to open and then to pass through the lock. We reach Luxor at 10.30pm and meet up with some friends in a nearby Hotel. Next day - Valley of The Kings.

Not everyone wore Galabayas Don't ask! And a good time was had by all
the 'Gyptian Jive' Galabayas copy Back at Kom Ombo - we go ashore after our Galabaya night
Feeding young camels Egyptian newly weds Shisha Pipes abound
We could have stayed all night Only posing - I didn't smoke it But others did
Back toward Luxor and we stop at Esna Waiting for the bridge at Esna to open Passing the open Esna Bridge
Passing the open Esna Bridge Waiting for Esna Lock to open Back on the boat our cleaner had been busy
