It’s hard to believe that we are floating down the Nile River in Egypt! Sometimes I feel like I need to pinch myself as a reminder that I’m not dreaming!
Today is a day off for everyone with only a 2-hour afternoon workshop on the boat. I did a couple of sessions today. Had a couple of organizer meetings also. The rest of the time was spent on the sun deck. It’s incredibly hot here. Could not sit for long in the hot sun. Haven’t tried the pool yet either.
My group got together with our tour guide and he spent an hour answering any questions we may have gathered up to now. He is so incredibly knowledgeable. By the end of it, everyone was overwhelmed with incredible information. We agreed to sit with him again. He’s loaded with valuable, ancient history of Egypt. He explained that the pyramids and temples had many powerful crystals put into them to activate them. The crystals were stolen during the Babylonian time. This was told to him by his good friend, Zachariah Sichin.
We floated by a long stretch of land that used to be the quarry that the limestone came from to build the Temples. There were some caves and small structures that the Quarry Masters used as offices and a refuge from the hot sun. They then became used for more tombs and shrines.
My eye seems to be a little bothered and is swollen a bit. Lucky me though, there are two Eye Doctors in our group so its well taken care of. Already starting to see the swelling going down.
The day ended relatively early for me. Planning on a good long sleep.
