We had a wonderful time visiting Mohamed Sobhi's house and museum, Animalia. The interesting discussion really helped us to get a thorough understanding of Nubian history and culture for a reasonable 10LE per person. I was really glad we wondered through the tranquil Nubian villages on Elephantine Island to find his place. We also enjoyed eating a wonderful lunch prepared by his wife before we continued on with our day. If you are in Aswan, take the quick ferry over to Elephantine Island, wander through the peaceful villages and visit Animalia. You'll have a wonderful time, learn a lot, and totally forget about the hassle of Egypt.
