Last of The Dude's Photos

The Dude landed back in the States last Friday Night. His "day" consisted of traveling for 48 hours straight, 8 security check points, and he was in surprisingly good spirits. I AM STOKED HE'S BACK IN ONE PIECE

He just wasn't quite ready for the -11F/ -23C temps that night. We have been under freezing temps for a high all this year so far. NO Mosquitoes

I am just knocked out by that Indigo!! And everything was Asian cheap. Full meal for two came to $6 US Dollars. Hotel room with clean sheets and a private bathroom was only $18 US Dollars. The Underground Subway was 35 cents US.

Hired a car and guide for the day, $2 US Dollars. Areas of Egypt that The Dude would have never seen for sure.

So he was wide awake by 5am Saturday morning and off to the foothills we drove. His stories were outstanding and we chattered the whole way. The Dude met some locals and talked about how one buys a home, education systems, and they shared each others traveling photos. They were all amazed that he lives here in Colorado and would just stare at his photos from home.

We ended up with cold brews while witnessing a flipping wild Tennessee Baltimore game. Nether one of could give a rats but what a thumbing. We are not anti Ravens but it was exciting to watch them get beat in every faceted of the game and AT HOME. And Tony Romo so sucks announcing games and he is such a Tom Brady cheerleader. Thankfully, the KC Houston game was on mute.

Congrats to the 9ers, The Titans, The Chiefs, & Them Packers

The Dude hammered one point home here. The Egyptian people are very kind, helpful as all get out, and everyone of them told The Dude to please tell your friends AND PLEASE COME BACK!! They are a second world country and NEED the tourist $$$$$$$$

So please treat others like the mideast folks treat tourist. Be Kind. Say Thank You. Pass On Random Acts Of kindness. Last But Not Least, Stay Strong



  1. Looks like the Dude had an awesome trip. The photos are amazing and that indigo is just jaw-dropping so blue. This weekend, we enjoyed record breaking temps. close to 70. And no mosquitoes! The rest of the week back to seasonal temps. Not so system shocking as the Dude. There is nothing wrong being a fan of The G.O.A.T (The Greatest of All Time), Tom Brady. As you ended your post, Be Kind. 😉

  2. Wow, those photos are stunning, beautiful trip!

  3. Hello, the photos from Egypt are just amazing What an awesome trip! I am really glad the Patriots lost against the Titans. Now, I do not care who wins. Good luck to them all. Have a great day and week ahead.

  4. Amazing photos and an amazing trip by the Dude. I would have some trouble too getting used to the colder temps. :) Have a great day and an awesome week.

  5. Egypt looks so appealing. I would not have thought to visit but we are going to Morocco in March. Getting back to Colorado weather must take some getting used to!

  6. That certainly is a temperature change. Great and interesting photos. Sadly much of Egypt is not considered safe now and the loss of tourism is immense.

  7. The photos are great! Egypt looks incredible in them.

  8. Egypt looks exotic and beautiful. I do really love the art - the "rock art" in our phrase. I'm glad that the people were so welcoming to the Dude, and that they loved his photos of Colorado. Thanks so much for sharing!

  9. Oh these shots brought back so many memories Padre, Egypt should definitely be on everyone's bucket list, it truly is an astounding experience! The only places left on my list are Vietnam and Japan, if only I can get over my ever growing fear of flying 😉 btw enjoyed time lapse in last post, don't you ever sit when you're doing a show?

  10. Egypt looks cleaner than I imagined the streets to be. Especially with the political situation of recent years.
    Great pictures, more interesting than professional tourist ones.
    Not sure I would wish to live there mind.

  11. He got some great shots! Yes, our experience of Egypt was the same -- terrific people, very friendly, very welcoming. (Sounds like The Dude got a much cheaper guide, though!) Glad he got all the way down to Abu Simbel!


  12. i couldn't believe that i would ever be re-unite with my ex-lover, i was so traumatize staying all alone with no body to stay by me and to be with me, but i was so lucky one certain day to meet this powerful spell caster Dr Akhere,after telling him about my situation he did everything humanly possible to see that my lover come back to me,indeed after casting the spell my ex-lover came back to me less than 48 hours,my ex-lover came back begging me that he will never leave me again,3 months later we got engaged and married,if you are having this same situation just contact Dr Akhere on his email: thanks very much sir for restoring my ex-lover back to me,his email: or call/whatsapp:+2349057261346
