Shades of Kipling!   We passed through the Suez Canal, that greatest of waterways, on a sunny June day in 2008.   Soft breezes, sands & the occasional camel along the bankside.   Sometimes, robed Egyptians watched, stared, sometimes waved.   In this view, we are looking south, from the aft end of the Crystal Symphony.   The northbound "convoy," through the Canal and mostly of mighty containerships,  has formed.
