Staggering Egypt Holiday

Just a quick note to say that the three Staggering Stories Podcast team members that were due to holiday in Egypt (those being Adam, Fake Keith and Real Keith – plus two others not ever heard in the podcast) have arrived safely.

In fact we could go so far as to say we are having a great (but exhausting) time of it right now!

Here’s a few quick photos taken with my new camera. These are the JPEG versions without any kind of editing. At some point I’ll bring the RAW files into a tool to improve them.  Right click and ‘View Image’ to see them without the browser/Wordpress forced image resizing that gives those nice jaggies…

Adam (me) going native.

Luxor Temple – it’s tall!


Three of the great pyramids at Cairo


The Spinx with pyramids in the background (all arty and sunsetty!)


The Nile at dusk.

    You’re a towel-head! With a Bear Grylls T-shirt… though for a moment I did think it was a Ghostbusters uniform!

    Oh dear, El Presidente has gone all Jihadi on us……He has a headscarf and he has a rucksack on his back,doubless with a copy of the Koran in it.Did you see the names carved into the columns in the Colonade at the Temples of Ammon-Ra? Hope your haggling skills are up to scratch lol.Keep us all posted as to where you are all going next.

  3. Back to capitalist pig-dog mecca – the McDonald’s in Luxor! Yes – I know, but Jamie wanted to visit and it does have free Wifi..!

    Been so many places, seen so much! Just got back from a sunset cruise on the Nile. Excellent stuff! Up at 05:00 again tomorrow for our last full day. We’re heading for another trip up the river, this time to Dendera. Should be good. So much to do, so little time!

    I don’t know about Ghostbusters but I certainly look like Indiana Jones! Haven’t found any Arks or aliens yet, though. Damn shame really – be so useful to have my disbelief of God refuted if I can direct his wrath as I command..!!!

    Unbeliever! The power of the mighty one will not be revealed to one who bathes himself in the earthly pleasures of McDonalds!

    Safe journey back to Blighty to you all.As Egyptians would say to you as a blessing:”May your tent echo with laughter,may your loins be fruitful and may the contents of a thousand camels bladders rain down upon you…..”
