15/43.- Aswan, falucas


In this photo you can see some of the famous sailboats in Aswan. We will later take one of these to see the sun set, as you will see, this is an unforgettable experience.

Near Aswan there is an engineering marvel that contains 18 times the material used in the great pyramid of cheops. Yes, I am talking about the famous High Dam. It was built in the 1960s, and it provides irrigation and electricity for the whole of Egypt. The dam formed the biggest artificial lake in the world, Lake Nasser, which is more than 500 miles long! Several ruins would have disappeared for ever, if the UNESCO had not moved them somewhere else. Some of the ruins saved are: the Abu Simbel temples and the Philae Temple.
