SUNSET IN ASSOUAN / ASWAN

by Tomie Poodle August. 01, 2008 5415 views

Sorry for so many pictures on the same subject…but i could not to choose favorites! i understood, now, why the Sultans had so many wifes…:)

Aswan is the ancient city of Swenet, which in antiquity was the frontier town of Ancient Egypt to the south. Because the Egyptians oriented toward the south, Swenet was the first town in the country, and Egypt always was conceived to open or begin at Swenet. It stood upon a peninsula on the right (east) bank of the Nile, immediately below (north of) the first cataract of the flowing waters, which extend to it from Philae.

president françois Mitterrand was in this hotel the last christmas before his death.

#9 & #20 are great captures of the sunset
Great set and I know how you feel about it being hard to choose. I was that way with one of my recent posts.

Fantastic series. I, too, tried to pick a favourite but it's not possible because they are all so good.
