Welcome Kim and feel free to just join in ;) Did you enjoy doing the Nile Cruise? we absolutely loved them and in my opinion it is the best introduction to visiting Egypt as it avoids most of the hassle and eases you into the mahem. :lol: You often see some people (on other sites ;) ) describing them as 'Floating Gin Palaces' obviously a description coined by someone who has never been on one, every one we did (and we did several) were really enjoyable and great company. If it was your first visit why not tell us a little more about your impressions and how you coped with it in general. Remember that although we tend to chat in a fairly general manner on here, that most of us are just as knowledgeable (and sometimes more so ;) than many other forums you can visit, so if you have any questions just ask away as I am sure we can help. We also like taking and showing our pictures so once again feel free to contribute. :up

Hi Kim and welcome to E4U. We are a small but friendly group spread far and wide and, as Horus has said, we enjoy topical lively discussion and are also keen to post lots of pictures so don't be shy and let's see some of yours. That is totally open and most of us post pictures from our home or holiday localities. :up

It happens quite often Ruby S on all the forums, sometimes they are not genuine or people just messing about. :urm:

Why didn't I think of transferring my interest in L4U blue board here a long time ago? Crazy!
I love the atmosphere, and nice to see "old" faces.
Actually before you say anything Ruby Slippers I do remember you telling me this was where I should be - I didn't listen, but you were right! :up

You are most welcome to join us on here MD :hug:
We do try and keep it friendly on here and a few more like yourself will certainly help, I do read your comments over on the Blue side and always think how yours in particular show tolerance and reason, unlike a lot of what I see there nowadays, I for one really look forward to your input :up

Well, thanks for the compliment Horus, but it's my cyber personality - not the real one. I get the chance to reflect and edit or possibly scrap (usually) before I post. Would that I wasn't so hasty in person. :oops:

Nice to see you too Kiya, very nice indeed. :)

Hi Mad Dilys, nice to see you on here :up

Are you still in Luxor? If so how about giving us an update on what's happening there at the moment. I have not been for two years now after 18 years of one or two visits every year.

Forgive me if this is a naive question but I don't read the blue side any more.

Well Grandad, I haven't been back for quite a while owing to health issues.

I'm gradually getting fixed and I hope to return before the end of the year. Inshallah.

Of course it's like a goal sentence with no fixed term - I miss everyone there more than I can say............after all I had been bouncing back and forwards since 1989, but if it's God's will then so be it. Al Hamdulillah.

Than you LLL not life threatening, thank God mostly the effects of " mis-spent" youth and I don't regret a minute o it. 8)

I recognise everyone here so far, you are all so much missed on the blue side. :(
