The Nubian Village in Aswan
Our last full day aboard our Nile River cruise was spent in Aswan. After seeing the main sites early in the day, we had the option of adding an extra excursion for a nominal cost. Our group agreed that a visit to the Nubian village sounded appealing, so we all boarded a small vessel and sailed upstream. When the high dam was built in 1970, the entire Nubian population of 50,000 in Aswan was resettled from their original communities. We were able to go into the home of a Nubian family, have a drink and partake of some shisha. Many of them also keep crocodiles in their homes as a tourist attraction. We then walked through the village, interacting with the kids and perusing the shops.
The peaceful boat ride back was the perfect way to wrap up our Nile River journey. The sun was setting, creating beautiful light and scenes along the river coast line. I’ll let the photos do the rest of the talking. Enjoy!
