Sailing Egypt’s Nile River on an Ancient Felucca

In December of 2006, accompanied by a local guide and my longtime friend Sean Safdi, I sailed the southern Nile river in an ancient Felucca sailboat. Although an ancient design, the boat sailed easily, and was maneuverable in the variable conditions and rapids of the river. A few photos from the journey.
