Travels to Egypt and Jordan

I haven't been writing for quite sometime because my husband and I have been on an eleven day vacation to Egypt and Jordan. We started our journey on the 13th of March and came back to Tehran on the 24th. We went on Jazeera Airline from Tehran to Alexandria and on coming back we caught a flight from Amman, Jordan to Tehran. It was good to see our youngest son in Cairo. We haven't seen him for about three months. I was also happy to see most of my former students there. Some of them were kind enough to invite us for dinner.
We were in Cairo for about 8 days - extended because the baby wanted us to stay on for a few more days, so we didn't get to spend more days in Jordan as planned. From Cairo, we took a bus to Nuwaiba, and from there a ferry to Aqaba, Jordan. The journey took us like, a day.. Then we spent another 5 hours in a bus to Ibrid where we stayed the night at another former student's and then fly back to Tehran...
Some pics to bring back memories:
