Getting to the Nubian Village requires a very delightful boat ride on the Nile. It's too bad the power lines run through the village and it's almost disappointing to see the satellite dishes popping up on the thatched roof tops because they bring a tarnishing modernity to the village. But the people are extremely friendly and hospitable. From opening their... More

We approached this village by a boat and the ride was very enjoyable. The village is quaint but offers typical tourist fare. Today I remember the boat ride but the memory of what the village offered is in a delete mode.
