    This morning continue to Aswan, where we'll set sail on a traditional felucca across the mighty Nile to see the Botanical Gardens on Kitchener's Island. On arrival explore the Aswan Dam, built to curb the periodic flooding of the Nile. Our next stop is the Temple of Isis, followed by a visit to the Unfinished Obelisk, lying semi-carved from the solid bedrock. As the dipping sun sets the sky on fire, admire the silhouette of feluccas plying the river's waters.
