Can You Tell What It Is Yet?




We sailed to Aswan from Luxor and moored at Elephantine Island then got on a smaller boat to see wildlife in the creeks off The Nile and these wondrous rock formations. Do you think this is why the island in The Nile at Aswan is named Elephantine?

Ooh, I could see it in the second photo. I thought the first one looked like teeth. Big teeth, obviously.

Elephant teeth-like a tusk? The other reason it was named Elephantine Island is because it was a route through Africa with the ivory trade.
