Camels are still used for transportation and as work animals.
We passed many fields while on the train. It was common to see families working together.
When we finally made it to Luxor, we got on our four day Nile cruise, the Jaz Royale. This is very different from an ocean cruise. The boat only had 47 guests. It would make multiple stops each day at various sites along the Nile. At night, it would dock at a town so we could walk around at night. It was an amazing experience to float along the Nile.
