Join me, as we travel to where and when it all began. Come along as I take you on this Egyptian Journey.
To my city – to my home. Aswan, Egypt.
I remember being a young boy, clinging to my father in one hand, and my toy boat in the other. The first time I looked out at the Nile River, as the water rushed against clusters of rocks and islands. I knew that I was in a magical place. It was well known that even though the Nile was beautiful – here, in Aswan – it was the most stunning to look at.
The way the water gently flowed against the granite rocks I stood along the banks, admiring the delicacy and the beauty it held. Captivating, was how the palm gloves and tropic plants lined the island. The beauty was breathtaking and wondrous to be a part of. I was born to be a part of Aswan just like Aswan is a part of me. With that, I will cherish that part of me forever.
