Tuesday Treasures

Tom the backroads traveller hosts this weekly meme. 

I am reposting this from 2014 as it is fun to re-read some of our travels.

November 2007 - Cairo Egypt 

These photos are from a dinner cruise we took in Cairo on the Nile in Egypt for a friend's surprise birthday dinner.

Our flight from Hurghada on the Red Seas had been delayed eight hours so I didn't think that we would make our reservation. However, our guide was so amazing, when I emailed that we were dealyed he moved our dinner reservation to the later sitting and ensured that the surprise birthday cake would still be available. With a few minutes to change we were on our way to the ship.

Arriving at our destination - The Pharoh

Boarding the ship


 Once the entertainment started I stood with my camera and just kept shooting.

Here's a quick video clip


  1. Oh my goodness - what a lot of fun!

  2. I love those photos of the spinning dancer - so cool!

  3. These are so fantastic - all the swirling capes, veils and skirts. That must have been a wonderful night.

  4. I love it! Makes me want to go right now!

  5. Wow....quite the show; bet it was lots of fun.

  6. I saw a couple of episodes of Joanna Lumley's trip down the Nile. She went on a very similar evening cruise, if not the exact one, although the belly dancer was different. The twirling guy looked the same.

  7. Egypt's dancers are usually Russian.
