How long is a piece of string? It all depends upon where about your boat is berthed, it could be anywhere along a 2 mile stretch of the Aswan Corniche, but it is likely to be within walking distance of the Old Cataract Hotel and the Obelisk Quarry site. Now you say you have visited both places before, therefore you will have some idea of the distance they are away from where the boats tie up, it is unlikely that you could not find a shop or a supermarket somewhere within that sort of walking distance.

pop over here to de bright-side to look at old stuff..... 8)
The Vietnamese president was also visiting. Or may be it was only him, and they thought he was Filipino?

A few years back they dug out the original 1801 recipe and started brewing Guinness West Indies Porter again. Very tasty it is too...

10 years since my last visit to Aswan - my memory isn't as good as it used to be - but I take your point.
