Yes you and Fred are taking the pre and post trips and I believe you start your trip in Aswan and work your way north. We thought of that cruise but I don't get out of teaching until the 18th of May so that is why we're taking the May 20th trip.
We have plenty of memory for our digital cameras and plenty of tapes for our digital video camera and we'll check back here when we're back and share stories and photos.
We loved Australia and spent three weeks exploring the eastern coast and will be going back for much more.
Our China trip was fantastic and if you'd like to see the photos here is the site I put them on www.flickr.com/photos/prius-04 enjoy.:D
