Default Walk like an Egyptian!

Ship docked at around 11:30 and I have never seen a cruise line get tours off the ship as fast as they did yesterday.

They cancelled the Papyrus Factory portion of our tour, but we got to the pyramids, Egyptian Mueseum, Sphinx and dinner on the Nile. A fabulous day, we arrived back to the ship around midnight last night!

Relaxing day today and tonight DINNER at the CAPTAINS TABLE!

I dare you to dress like (Fill in the blank everyone ) . . . .

Have fun CA!

Your niece wants to know what you are bringing back for her. She wanted me to remind you that Uncle Doug brought her salmon treats from Alaska in May.

Please don't wear your Nefertiti outfit to the Captain's table.

Apparently our little ploy met with the desired success!

Sounds like a great day, but a long one John. Can't wait to hear about your dinner with the Captain but don't tell him you were one of the "Red Shirt" people.

This is also probably your best chance for one of those martini glasses. Think they'd stop you if you were with the Captain?

CA.. delighted to hear your day on Eygpt wasn't ruined by mechanical problems. Enjoy your dinner tonight! Maybe for after dinner entertainment you can get the Captain to join u for a slide down the bannister.

Regards,
Kuki

CA...we are on the 9/4 Millenium sailing from Istanbul and was concerned about the mechanical problems you mentioned. Did you get any further info as to the problem and if it will affect anything further? Glad you are having a great time and we are looking forward to our trip. Thanks for any info.

John:
Cancelled the Papyrus Factory? My G-d, what will happen next?
If I were visiting Egypt, I'd be livid if I didn't get to see the Papyrus Factory...
Did you get a refund?

Jeff
P.S. Have a great time!!!
