Rolling on the (Nile) River...aka Proud Mary



Not for nothing is Tina Turner referred to as 'the most dynamic soul singer in the history of Music'.

Anyway, what i'm trying to convey is that i will be rolling on the River Nile this coming Monday, as i embark on my 7 day Nile cruise! To be honest, i'm not really feeling the excitement i thought i would be at this juncture, however, the thing is all paid for therefore i just know that that excitement will come flooding in, at the very latest, at the moment my feet touch down on Egyptian soil! And yes, i will continue to tell myself that until it becomes my reality. Ok?!

The itinerary promises a wicked experience, anyway.

But seriously, isn't Tina fabulous dah-ling?! Those legs! That presence...You really must watch the video to the end. It starts off slow, but gathers momentum and explodes 2 minutes in, and through to the end!

Yep. So i leave for Egypt on Monday. I will be back in a week with loads of pictures. Whether or not i give a day by day, blow by blow account as i did with my Marrakech trip last year here, here, here and here all depends on the way i feel, the amount of effort involved or just reader demand. Whichever way, i will be giving you the low down. It promises to be exciting, peeps!!!

So have a brilliant weekend y'all. And if you haven't already, do pop over to 14th and Serenity and check out The Doc's entry - a truly formidable feat of literary genius!!! Makes me really wish i could write too! No disrespect to the other contributors and i recognise that comparison in this sense would be apples and pears, however, to me, this is the real deal!

Peace out........

Watched the video and just had to comment again. I'm a Tina fan. Saw her at her 'last ever' gig in the UK. She is amazing; strong, talented and sexy. My kind of sista.

@30+ - Looks like hit and run o! - the doc hit us with his genius and then disappeared in to thin air. This might be a job for Agent Trinity. Lol...

And thanks, i will enjoy myself i'm sure

@Naijalines - Thank you. i will take lots of pics just for you :). I'm also on my way over now. What is it? Is it Legend of Di Pata - Part 2? The one where they find the frilly knickers?

I love Tina Turner too! She's wonderful! I heard/saw somewhere that she'll be playing the O2 soon...

Enjoy your trip and yes I would like to read an account of your experience out there.

Tina is amazing. I saw her once in London and thought "she looks familiar". How one can look that good at that age is beyond me, but I guess if you're that loaded...

Jesus take the wheel! Hard to accept that Marrakech was almost a year ago. I had to go deep into your blog archives to make sure you were not telling porkies.

Enjoy that side my dear and watch out for the crocs.
