Aswan

 

 

   
 

Aswan is the most southerly populated town in Egypt

 

 

 

 

The High Dam

 

At Aswan Egypt changes. From now on southward the River Nile is no more, its fast flowing torrents replaced by the immense still waters of Lake Nasser, created by the construction of the High Dam. No longer are the banks covered in lush vegetation, no longer are there people or towns, only sand and rock. This is the Nubian Desert.

 

 

The Souk (Market)

 

The Unfinished  Obelisk in the quarry at Aswan.

Whilst being undercut it developed a crack

so it was left in situ and never was finished
