[Entry 9] In Denile

09 December 201001:49AMepic-triptravel

The only good thing (and really, I mean the only good thing) about being on this boat is being on the Nile. This is because the Nile looks like this:

This is what I woke up to this morning. It's incredible. I never want to stop looking at it. I have to tear my eyes away from the window just to write about how cool it is.

This is the exact same river that Julius Caesar fell crazy in love with and had mad adventures down, and it's easy to see why. It's no Swan river, all brackish and then stopping halfway up some hills. The Nile keeps going, and going, and going. The Energizer Bunny of rivers. Same width, same flow. Chilled.

Plus, people live on it, and around it, and off it, and depend on it. They wash and fish and swim and boat. The Nile is a River the same way Cairo is a City.

(We did some other stuff today* too, but I'll post about that later. Right now, I'm in denile. And yes, I promise that's the last time I will ever, ever use that pun. Sorry.)

*By today, I of course mean yesterday, since it's only today that we found an internet cafe.
