Uncle Gordon’s Visit

Filed under: visits — scotsabroad @ 9:21 am

We said farewell to Gordon last night. We hope he had a great time visiting us despite his food poisoning.

Cairo says,  It was a lot of fun having Gordon here. We played Subbuteo and Monopoly. We all went to Luxor and we saw some tombs. We went to Luxor Temple and Gordon had a guide. Me and Gordon went up in a balloon together. It was scary but fun in the end. Thanks for taking me.

Lucas says,  We took Uncle Gordon to the nice restaurant in Luxor that they are about to knock it down. Me and Cairo are annoyed because you get big milkshakes there. We played volleyball in the pool with Gordon and we got to stand on his shoulders, and then he threw us into the water. We took him to Muhammad Ali Mosque and we saw some swords and the first ever machine gun. Thank you for coming in the pool with us.


It was lovely to have my brother in Egypt. Gordon is good company and despite there being very few Roman ruins or artefacts to look at, he relaxed a lot. Thanks for coming over Gordon.  Here is a list of what you did and saw: Valley of the Kings (Tuthmosis III and Siptay’s tombs); Habu Temple; Colossi of Menon; Luxor Temple; Luxor souk; felucca on the Nile; Ibn Tulun mosque; the Citadel and Muhammad Ali’s mosque.
