On these three pages, you'll find an in-depth spread of pictures and a cool interactive satellite-photo track-map covering our descent of Egypt 3. If you liked what you saw of Egypt 3 in the main narrative, then spend a few minutes looking at all of the extra images contained here. Extra images of Egypt3 that were not in the main narrative are indicated by a color surrounding the image thumbnail.

Please note: this page isn't part of the main trip report. If you are interested in the full narrative of our time in Egypt 3, then you should go to this page (page 5) in the main story narrative. Once you've finished with the narrative, you may then wish to come back to this section to look at all of the extra pictures (and the maps) of our descent of Egypt 3 that I couldn't fit into the main narrative.
