Flight Out of Egypt

Ever been on a plane with dozens of pilgrims on their way to Mecca when the plane hits turbulence? That's how we ended our Nile cruise.


Hey, this is in draft right now because I'm just trying to clear out the backlog. photos are up, along with some notes, but no guarantees where the links go.
It's a work in progress.

Late wake up, off boat 12:30. 2:30 fit wheels up at 2:12. Landed in Cairo, learned at 4pm or evening flight was cancelled. No WiFi since...?

what about the turbulence? Much of the plane was full of pilgrims performing Hajj, and when we hit turbulence, they started chanting the Hajj Talbeyah, like these pilgrims aboard Monarch Airlines and these folks on Saudia.











Also, the in-flight magazine had an article about the girls in pink in Karnak.
So that's it. The trip summary.
