Up the Nile: Day 7 (Aswan to Abu Simbel)

Here's pictures of the drive over the old dam, looking out over the rocky first cataract, and then through the desert to Abu Simbel.  I stayed at the Nubian Culture House there, which was basically a lovely Nubian-style B&B with good food, music, decor, and scenery.  We caught the sound and light show at the temples, which I hear is pretty much the only worthwhile one on the Nile Valley trek, and which I did enjoy a lot.  I slid into my mosquito-netted bed to catch a few hours sleep before the last day of my vacation...
