We set sail on Christmas Eve bound for Abu Simbel on Lake Nasser. The food onboard has been the best we have tasted for a while so after gorging ourselves on a huge buffet lunch we were both ready to doze off when we heard the gong for dinner. We decided to get a small bite to eat and retire. Unfortunately as the majority of the 24 passengers on this ship are German, the 9 course Christmas Meal arrived a day early. Since then we have seen many temples, drunk much Egyptian beer and consumed more than our own body weight in food.
