Toursim and the effect on the community.

The travel story goes like this…The Trip to Egypt-Misr in November 2011 was so Life changing experience..As i was going through the places to travel in Egypt-The trip would have been incomplete if one doesn’t travel to Aswan and doesn’t experience Nubian community.So,Nubians are ethnic group from northern Sudan and lives in southern Egypt.A walk around Nubian village with a visit to a local home is a very common thing on an itienary of whoever visits Aswan,Egypt.The first view itself was so striking enough.Friendly people,culturally upgraded,traditionally colourful.so here,especially Nubian women contributes more to the Nubian community as they are the people who brings in tourists to their homes,display their artwork,their cooking talents in their local cuisine,etc,.Nubian village and the Nubian women are the most important identities of Nubian cultural tourism in Egypt.Nubians just dont produce great folklore music,but beautiful clothes,ethnic handicrafts and distinctive spices.Nubian community is home to the beautiful world’s second largest Man-Made lake-Lake Nassar facing the awe strucked and magnificent Abu simbel.The interesting thing which i saw at Nubian village  were mud brick houses,sand floors,keeping alligators as pets,creative and daily life inspired paintings and artifacts at home..And as the village is right across the Nile so the eco community tourism is developing.As i went with 6 -8 friends of mine from various countries like China,Australia,Argentina,India and BrazilDSC01304 DSC01317 DSC01385 Luxor Aswan Abu Simbel 385 to just see and understand what is it all about ,that itself displays that somehow we definately contributed lot to the community which I am pretty sure and i also saw that it  is conserving  natural and cultural environment…so,lets not miss visiting  this fantastic gateway of Egypt and most importantly of Africa.

Luxor & Aswan are one of the most amazing places in Egypt and Africa. You can find a unique culture that will change your way of thinking for the rest of your life. And to add to that and to the point of amazing women contributing in amazing ways, Siwa and the oasis in the western desert are places not to ever miss next time. Travel changes people and people change the world. So keep going from one place to another and don’t stop !
