Stuck

Well, since many of you have claimed that our blog updates were resembling something less than cutting-edge journalism due to lack of any decent updates, we thought we would kick it into gear and share a bit of the goings-on in 2005 with you.

The year got off to a great start when Genia's parents came to give us a visit. We had some wonderful excursions through Egypt, including a relaxing cruise on Lake Nasser. But, in one of the more adventurous moments, we decided to check out one of the desert oases in the Sahara.

Although absolutely beautiful and stunning in a way that is very different than the Nile valley, the oases tend to offer somewhat less in the way of amenities, primarily due to lack of sufficient traffic to warrant the expense by the few enterprising tour guides and others.

In the end, beside a bit of the food poisoning that caught up with some of us, we had a great visit, and as you can see from the picture below, we were super lucky to have Jim and Anne helping to get us unstuck!
