Elephantine Island.. Kitchen Island.. a tomb ... n so on.. after finish.. we gave the captain tips cause he asked for it while on sailing huhuhh... i just don understand egyptian.. didnt we paid to get on the sail?? as mahmoud said it cost 20US dollar per person (thats a lot of money ok!! 10pounds UK equal to 70ringgit malaysia..thats about 5Mc D meals ok huhuhh) .. then y d he** did they ask for an extra tips??? arghhhh no idea!! ok enough bout egyptian "way of life".. after that we decided to go around the Aswan town cause it seem still early.. n there was sum kind of parade went on.. don no wat probably Maulud Nabi or probably sumthing politic.. n nowhere to go in d town so went back on cruise..had a tea n biscuits n watch them playing pingpong.. uhhh how i wish they got a table football.. uhukkss.. i tried pingpong but... i just wasnt born for pingpong hahahhh.. alasan semata..the lepaking was great!! the wind was great!! so relax.. we kinda 'dressed up' for the dinner.. dinner was served n d food was good.. we had broccoly soup..
