Banana Island

A trip out to the Banana Island is simply beautiful. And strange.
From a quay right in the middle of town a small boat brings you quickly out to the countryside. It only takes a few minutes.
The Banana Island is not as thick with banana trees as the name suggests, but the tranquility with the palms and reed next to the Nile, the feluccas and the modest houses allow plenty of photo opportunities. I loved this little spot.
