As We Leave, We Celebrate

The time has come to say farewell to our old and new friends. It’s been an epic 12 days in Egypt. Our last full day in Aswan I hosted a surprise reception in my villa for our guide, Vivian. She popped in without knowing the group would be there. I presented her with her gratuities envelope and a lovely crocodile cross body bag. She has been with us every step of the way from day 1. In addition to being an accomplished Egyptologist, she is most humble and down to earth. It was a very good day.
Later on that evening a few of us met up on the 13th level for dinner in the Panorama Restaurant. Unbeknownst to Elvin & Joyce Crum we wanted to celebrate their 46 year anniversary. What a lovely couple! I’m honored to have had them travel with Kattrax for almost 2 decades. In the morning we fly to Cairo for one last night in preparation for the flight home. 5 of us will continue on to the 5 star All Inclusive Steigenberger Resort in Hurghada on the Red Sea. It was to be Sharm El Sheikh but when the pandemic forced the COP 27 (Climate Control Conference) to roll over on our dates, we changed our course to Hurghada. Next year hopefully there will not be a conflict of dates for any international conference. I look forward to our next year’s tour with a 4 day extension in Sharm.
