Thanks very much for a great link Winged Isis, I've subscribed! Do you happen to know where the new water-filled tomb at Silsilla located - East or West Bank?

Heard yesterday that the trip to Aswan has to be done on the East Bank at the moment as the West Bank road is being resurfaced (the taxi collecting them arrived covered in tar having come down the West Bank & came back on the East Bank) Hopefully won't go on for too long but its a pretty long road :(

Possibly true, but then many things happen in Egypt that don't elsewhere, I've found.

Very true, Winged Isis! I've been into all sorts of places where there's 'no public access'! A nice smile, a cigarette and baksheesh usually does the trick 8)
