 River Nile Minya Egyptian sky trees promenade hotel view afternoon taken from the hotel overlooking the River Nile as the base for visiting the sites of Bani Hasan and Amarna. There was a pleasant walk along the promenade and it was also fascinating for the huge flocks of small birds that flew in to their roosting trees as evening closed in. We stayed in the Mercure Hotel Nefertiti, an aging hotel which had seen better days and it overlooked the newer chalet type complex called Hotel Aten.
