A trip to Shendi : Frolicking in the sand...

My kids were so looking forward to go to the pyramids. The funny thing was Hadi, in his mind, 'pyramids' and 'Egypt' were the same thing. During the journey, he kept asking ,"Are we in Egypt, yet?"... sigh... how can you explain to an inquisitive four year old that Egypt's very far away. Till this very day, he would refer to the pyramids as 'Egypt'!

Anyway, when we reached the site, he was very impressed. I think it fits into his image of the desert... clear blue skies and orange sand... Anyway, Aliah and Hadi went for a 'slide'... it was fun although the heat was terrible... They kept on going up for mineral water...hehehe... Amir tried to slide but he was too small...

Hadi and Aliah...sliding down...

Amir...

When the heat from the sun was too much for them, they played with the sand under the shade. Amir and Hadi were thrilled to be able to play with the sand to their hearts' content... Just look at how they enjoyed themselves...sigh...

Amir was making a lot of noise...

They were happy...

Aliah was screaming...

They were playing with so much sand that it got into their shoes, shirts and pants. They left a trail of sand everywhere they walked...sigh... When we reached the apartment, I immediately ordered them into the bathroom. I had to spray all the three of them with water. The funny thing was, Amir even had sand in his pampers...hehehe... I guess the sand was so fine that it got into the crack in his bum...hehehe... Serve him right for playing too much with the sand!!!

Amir was one happy boy...hehehe...

Hey girl, thanks for the interesting write-up on the trip. Love the pictures too...I could see Shendi via your pictures of activities.

I have been meaning to visit Shendi since December 2007 but never did seriously make time for it. Instead my family and I visited the pyramids in Cairo!

Dear Josephine,

Cairo's definitely much better...way much better... I think it's a pity that there's no proper management of the place... sigh...
