One activity I really enjoyed in Aswan when we took the boat to have dinner in a Nubian Village. We got to meet locals, see the village, and learn local customs such as marriage customs. They graciously prepared us a very appetizing dinner.￼￼
Our Nubian host meets us at our hotel and takes us to his island on a very calm boat ride on the Nile.
Once off the boat we walk through the village to get to his house where a table is set up for us.
While we wait for dinner they take us to the roof so we can see how the house is constructed.
Soon it is time for dinner. All the dishes are delicious. I feel very grateful they share them with me. While we eat our Nubian host describes local customs concerning marriage and such.
I feel very lucky that our tour included such an experience.

For me, and after seeing your photos, it seems so exotic and, at the same time, so authentic and genuine 🙂 would love to do it 🙂 cheers from Portugal, PedroL
It seems exotic from afar but when you experience it in person you reason you are just meeting people who just have different ways of doing things from yourself. It is a good experience.
