The sunrise above heralded a bright, sunny morning, the start of a new day. And I always like the feeling at the start of a new year, despite a tendency to make good resolutions which I don't always keep.
I'd better keep my main resolution now, though. It is to write my article on Bavaria - fast! It needs doing before my head gets totally scrambled by my next destination, Egypt.
I'm told that the weather isn't that hot in Egypt right now, and I'm hoping to see a few camels, (which are of course mostly there for tourists nowadays). I find camels strangely appealing. The ones below aren't Egyptian camels. I took the photos earlier this year in Syria, but I doubt that Egyptian camels look much different!.
