Sights around Aswan

Before sailing from Aswan, our guide for the cruise took us around to several of the sights in Aswan, including a felucca ride to a beautiful botanical garden on Kitchener's Island, and a bus tour to the unfinished obelisk, the High Dam, and an obligatory visit to a perfume store/factory.
