It took us more than three hours to get near the bridge from Ramla today, and when we were almost there, we turned around until we were past Karnak where we turned again. On this lazy afternoon with the the mild sun and an occasional fresh breeze, all we did was enjoy good food, cool drinks and the scenery along the mighty river. At five o'clock, we recognised some of Attar's classic treats as well as some new delicacies, and he was excited when on my way home, I told him that he had baked it all for us, his faithful costumers.

After a long, slow day on the Nile in great friendship, we watched a lovely sunset from the deck before we were back where we had started six and a half hours earlier. I would have loved to wake up somewhere south of here in one of the elegant cabins for another few blessed days surrounded by friends and smiling crew on a brand new dahabeya - but who wants to run out of dreams?

It was certainly an amazing day doing nothing but watching the riverbank drift slowly by, talking to friends, enjoying the food and the air.
The dahabeya is a quality piece of workmanship with a very proud owner.

It felt like we were in a world from the past for just a day :)
