This photo is of the Nile River from Elephantine Island in Aswan, Egypt. As the Nile navigates north, passing and smoothing out its surroundings, it looks like something out of Egypt land at Disney World. It makes for some exciting exploring and Felucca sailing. Though the waters of the Nile look enticing, when the current is weak, beware of catching bilharzia or snail larve that can penetrate ones skin and lay eggs beneath it. So instead of swimming to the Island, catch a ferry for 17cents.
