Travels, Down the Nile In Egypt

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

I've recently returned from discovering Egypt along the Nile and a couple of days in Cairo. The Nile cruise was amazing, and we stopped off at several areas from Luxor to Aswan to see tombs and temples. For me, the most amazing part was watching the world go by from the cruise ship on the Nile. The role of the Nile plays a very important part in the lives of the people who live on it. Along the Nile, I saw clothes being washed in the river, workers traveling along the banks on donkeys, children playing, fisherman fishing in little boats, farmers working in fields, workers praying, the sounds of the calls to worship from various mosques set back from the river, beautiful sunsets, and wandering livestock. This is certainly one of the most amazing places that I have visited. Below are a few photos that I took that document life along the Nile.














Review: City Sketchbooks

I love living in Bath and browsing the shops on my walk back to my apartment from work in the afternoon. On one of my window-shopping experiences on the way back from work, I noticed some interesting books in a little card and gift shop. I have always been a fan of art and architecture, and the drawings reminded me of some of the artwork I created when I lived in London in 2000. My drawings were mainly sketches of buildings or the detail of a building.

There is a series of beautiful books with sketches of the architecture in various cities (Paris, London, etc.). They are beautiful and would look great on a coffee table. Paris Sketchbook (Fabrice Moireau, Graham Byefield, Mary Kelly).
