The ancient Egyptian culture is perhaps one of the most fascinating of all time. The pharoahs along with their elaborate lifestyles have given a treasure trove of information to us. I have travelled around the world and enjoyed learning about many civilizations, Egypt by far is my favorite. It's almost an obsession. I find myself thinking about the undiscovered tombs, temples and the everyday life that hasn't changed much for the last 5000 years. The Egyptian have a saying, "Once you drink from the River Nile, you will always return." It seems to be true in my case.

I drank from the Nile, and I keep going back! I love it there. Anyone who wants to go-let me know!

I'd like to drink from the Nile and live the experience! Sounds cool to me!

It looks like we'll have our opportunity! I've been researching about Luxor from attractions to restaurants. This will undoubtedly be a fun trip!

The Ethiopians are building a dam on the Nile that would have major consequences in Egypt. I wonder how this will play out.

Let's hope there will be a Nile in Egypt to drink from!

I've read about this story. I don't think the Ethiopians will get away with damming the Nile. A political time-bomb.

I would love to take a Nile Cruise! I watch just about every program on TV about Egypt. Truly fascinating!

I agree. Egypt is a place, you either, love or hate. I love it.
