Do you know small village, Abu Simbel?
Of course you know the Abu Simbel shrine, but I think you do not know the village with the shrine. I did not know the place at all either.
Abu Simbel is a village lying 280 km south of Aswan and only 40 km north of the Sudanese border.
It is a very small settlement with very little to attract visitors other than its great temples for which it is famous.
Few tourists linger for more than a few hours, although there are 5 hotels to attract visitors to stay the night.
I feel really sorry that they do not know why this village is so poor.
