Photo Break

...before resuming work on an admin project this Sunday morning -- how depressing is that...
Here's one taken during an afternoon felucca ride on the Nile River.
As described on Wikipedia, it was indeed quiet and relaxing, with the gentle breeze propelling the boats forward, and the warm weather causing a significant amount of blissful lethargy.
Thankfully, I was kept awake by a stimulating conversation with a NASA engineer, as we discussed topics ranging from the U.S. Presidential elections to Hurricane Gustav and medicine.
And you'll be happy to know that the Nile doesn't stink, unlike the waterways of Venice ( at least the narrower ones ).
