remainder of the day. Went to the Nile Barrage. Train journey 16 ½ miles 2 ½ piastres. Hired a donkey at the Barrage Station & trotted to the dams. The gardens are very nice here. There is a Museum of models showing how the Barrage is worked but unfortunately it was closed as it was G.F. The Nile Delta commences here & across each arm a dam has been constructed. The arms are very wide. The difference in the levels was only very small but still a tremendous lot of water was being held
