Just a few highlights from my trip to Alexandria, Egypt, in the beginning of January. Looking across the harbour you can see the Library. Due to its low profile you can hardly see it in this picture, but it has a wonderful location close to the shore.
Looking across the harbour, to the place where the old famous Lighthouse is supposed to have been located.
Alexandria is known forits fish and fishing ‘industry’; here are some fisher men mending their nets. Alexandria accordingly also have several fish restaurants, and we tried one, and had an excellent dinner. But don’t ask me the name of the fish.
I couldn’t stand the temptation to post this picture; remove the cars, and you can hardly tell what century it pictures. This great mosque was close to the beach, and to the reataurant where we had our dinner.
