Traveller Ian Green booked tickets from Cairo to Luxor in 2011: "We bought our train tickets online at the Egyptian National Railways website https://enr.gov.eg having followed your link and signed up. It took 2 or 3 days until I could log in successfully, but I managed to book tickets online from Cairo to Luxor and from Aswan back to Cairo. We caught train 980 from Cairo to Luxor in first class leaving at 8am (platform 8) with self-print online tickets costing 187.20 Egyptian pounds between us [about £24, just £12 per ticket] and later took train 983 from Aswan to Cairo again in first class, leaving at 7am, costing 226.72 Egyptian pounds between us [about £29 or £14.50 each]. We had no troubles with our print-at-home tickets, as soon as the conductors saw them they spoke in English. Quite simple really. We saw a few other non-Egyptians on the trains, all of whom had had to get around the system by getting people to buy tickets for them, or getting split journey tickets, costing around an extra 100 Egyptian Pounds."

The History of donkeys in Egypt

The History of donkeys in Egypt | Tour Karnak Temple by a Fellucca Boat | Scoop.it

History of Donkeys in Egypt
Egypt ,The Mediterranean and West Asia are excellent places for donkeys, which are like horses but smaller. Donkeys are strong, so they can carry heavy loads, but they are small so they don't need as much to eat as cattle or horses do. And donkeys have good digestion. They're not as delicate as horses, and they can eat practically anything.

People probably first thought of donkeys as food, and hunted them. But by around 3000 BC people had already begun to use donkeys to carry things from one place to another (This is about a thousand years after people tamed horses in Central Asia). Probably Egyptian people were the first ones to have tame donkeys. They may have tamed donkeys because Egypt was getting warmer, and they had to change the way they lived in order to deal with that.

People also used donkeys to ride on, and to carry fields products .

Abusimbel Sun festival Day Tour

Abusimbel Sun festival Day Tour | Tour Karnak Temple by a Fellucca Boat | Scoop.it

The spectacle—which has endured more than 3,200 years of Egyptian history—draws thousands of tourists to Abu Simbel to watch this ancient tribute to a pharaoh whose name is still known up and down the Nile Valley for his military exploits and monumental building projects.

Festival of the Sun

That the days of illumination correspond to actual days in the life of Ramses is highly unlikely, says Leo Depuydt, an egyptologist at Brown University.
"The Egyptian calendar was based on 365 days and while it was precise, the solar calendar is minutely different from year to year," says Depuydt, who adds that it is also difficult to know the precise date of the birth or coronation of Ramses II.
"Regardless of the alignment, if the temple faces East, the sun is going to shine in it twice a year," says Depuydt, who adds that "excitement is the key here—people are going to come to see the sun in the temple. But science is a different matter."

Itinerary:

The wee hours of the morning we rise and embark upon on our minibus journey toward the Grand Temples of Abu Simbel. In readiness we await for the first rays of golden sunlight to touch the temple gate signifying the start of the Sun Festival of the mighty King Ramsses II On the short walk to the temple entrances, your guide will explain the history of the site, including details of the UNESCO-led relocation of the entire cliff face to higher ground, and how the temples were discovered by accident in 1813. Due to the large number of visitors to Abu Simbel, guides are not permitted inside either the Great Temple of Ramses II or the smaller Temple of Hathor. However, by using photos and illustrations, your egyptologist guide will explain to you the structures and their interior artworks. After the event, there will also be plenty of time to explore the Sun Temple of King Ramses II and also the Temple of Hathor and take plenty of pictures. You will then have free time to enter the temples and explore them at your leisure. After visiting the temples there may be time for a short visit to the small visitor's center which documents the UNESCO relocation project, before returning to the way.minibus for the drive back to Aswan. The drive is approximately three hours each way .

A Tourist Tale about Egypt's Food

When I left to Egypt in the past year, I never thought I was coming back fond of this country kitchen. Fresh fruits, vegetables and cereals group of stunning and huge markets is a paradise for vegetarians. Will occupy the kitchen Egypt easily ranked fifth among the top five countries in the plant list.
Took me cook pancakes and food talented guide Nadia on a tour of food to the market "Moaz street" famous in Old Cairo, which I took many of the photos below and if you visit Egypt one day, do not waste your tours , food interesting and fun provided by Nadia and her friends.
Making good "pita" Bread

Hassan is a bakery to bake "Pita" in a street market next to Khan Khalili, "Azhar area" famous in Old Cairo, which is a small shop and a modest, hardly pay any attention to him. But I am very happy because I entered it, and thanks in return for Nadia, because the bread is very good, fresh and extremely flavorful.
Not only the quality of the bread, but the same good people nice and friendly. It has invited me to his kitchen, and showed me how the bread making distinctive and spoke enthusiastically about the methods and prescriptions. It also allowed me to spend several hours in his small store, and even allowed me the opportunity to try my hand making bread, but what I made bread from my hand it seemed funny ,asterisk are distorted and made me laugh!
Do you see Oven in the background? There are good baked the bread, which is lined with metal furnaces and round and cavernous. Has been described as good, saying it was "like the mother's abdomen." It is interesting that they call ovens "Forn", we in India call it "tandoor."
I asked about the secret of good bread wonderful, he said that the secret in the beginning the "old" in the kneading. Hassan called "old" because the first dough was made to him in 1985, and since that time, and every day, keeps good piece of dough the previous day and adds them to the dough the following days. In this way, as explained to me the good, the dough "continuous" since more than 27 years. The first-made dough containing yeast in it, but since that time has not been used at all in yeast Hassan daily. After that, the way of continuity in the old dough bread quality given a mild yeast.
Belongs to a class with good bakers who make bread, a traditional Arab, he is from Zakazyek, a Delta city. He works hard, gets up at five o'clock in the morning and often works late into the night. dough fresh every day using half white flour and half wheat flour, water and salt (in addition to some of the dough the day before).

Then Hassan and his assistant, the formation of dozens and dozens of loaves of pita bread round and large chewed gently and bake in the oven is a wonderful charcoal its own, and then carrying out spraying sesame seeds black and white or a little thyme to the bread.

Cookies "Kahk" which looks like you've never see before

The Egyptians have developed a small buns to a form of art. After the experience of Cookies "Kahk", you will not see at all the cookies in the same way again. The Fitre Feast is a Muslim Feast , which lasts 4 days, the Muslim eat cookies (or Kahk) and other cookies items during the period of Eid al-Fitr.

I was lucky enough because I was present in Egypt during the festival Eid al-Fitr, and tasted some amazing cookies. It was a difficult choice because it was the introduction of many flavors of appetite.

During the festival, "Eid al-Fitr", the cookies shops packed with people. This man loves cookies selection.
My favorite cookie that was stuffed , and that comes stuffed with Turkish delight ! What a great idea! This cookie was presented with the sugar powder on top, and the filling containing turkish delight .
This cookie in the market was" kind "common" and Stuffed date dessert.
Homos best eaten at all

I am fond of chickpeas. I ate a lot of hummus in Egypt until he came out of my ears! I have cleared the dishes and the delicious dishes of hummus and pita bread with fat and soft bloated. Eventually, I found this the best hummus ever eaten.
That was in a small restaurant called "Elmadry" in the market "khan khalili" in Cairo. This restaurant offers delicious dishes traditional Egyptian cuisine (a large number of vegetarian options also ), Homos best tasted at all.
It was a chick in a restaurant "Elmasry" rich and soft and very luxurious, and the appropriate amount of salt and lemon. The restaurant was generous in tehena provided by the hummus, which gives him a sense of richness in the mouth.
Image above: vegetarian meal calorie diet and I dealt with food in a restaurant "elmasry," a cabbage stuffed with rice cooked in tomato sauce, paprika, with pickles, hummus and pita bread.
Vegetarian meal in Cairo with Egyptraveluxe guide Nadia

In the last night of the festival "Eid al-Fitr", making us a great power with Nadia sumac on the dinner. Sumac for the dark red color, which is a powder of spices with a wonderful flavor. Power, we dealt with a lot of grain and bread and cheese. Power was a snack, but compelling and wonderful reminder that even the simplest of meals can be transformed into unforgettable meals when eaten with the good people in an atmosphere of friendly conversation .

After we dealt with the authority of sumac, we finished the meal Holiday "Eid al-Fitr" eat cookie "kahk" usual, and these were sugared and the cookie stuffed with nougat this time .

Fantastic Opportunity to Visit Egypt this time

These are some reviews of Egypt's visitors 2012:
We have just returned to Canada after a fantastic month of travel in Egypt and Jordan. After our group tour was cancelled because of the uncertainty in Egypt, Yousef Ibraham of Egyptraveluxe tours in Giza, Egypt was able to arrange a comprehensive tour of the major sights in Egypt and Jordan on very short notice. Within two weeks we had agreed an itinerary and arrived in Cairo on February 24, 2011.
Because of the current low level of tourists we were able to upgrade our accommodations and were fortunate to have very well qualified guides and personal attention throughout our travels. The staff from Egypt Traveluxe and their staff were constantly monitoring our status and conditions of travel arrangements to ensure our plans and schedule remained intact. On a couple of occasions we had to change from air flights to train travel because of flight cancellations due to the low volume. The first train trip was an experience, but the second convinced us that plane travel was definitely preferable.
A particular highlight was a week spent in the western desert, including the Siwa Oasis and two days camping in the white and black deserts - a totally different view of Egypt. The guide and off road driver were particularly enthusiastic and knowledgeable to make this a fun experience.
Of course there were the well known key attractions of Abu Simbal, Temples of Karnak and Luxor, Valley of the Kings , Sakkara, Dahshoor, Cairo and the Pyramids of Giza, the Library in Alexandria and the various points in between covered during the Nile River Cruise from Aswan to Luxor. The sound and light show at Karnak, ballooning in the valley of the Kings and climbing Mt. Sinai were also memorable experiences.
Petra was truly an amazing place. We spent three days at the site and could easily have spent more time, the dead sea, Jerash, Amra and Ajlun Castle were also memorable areas to visit.
During all our travels in Egypt and Jordan we were welcomed by all that we met and never had any concern for our safety or security. While we regret the unfortunate effect on the economy and livelihood of many people the great lack of tourists provided us with unique opportunities to visit and view the historical monuments and sites in an unusual fashion, almost totally free of crowds.
Our thanks to Yousef and his staff for their outstanding efforts.
