... here before heading further to the sites.We bought a 3 tombs combined ticket (Ramose, Userhet and Khaemhet) to the valley of the Nobles. Only about 10 minutes of ride, we arrived the downhill of the Nobles Tombs. A guide walked toward us and offered us to take us to the three tombs for 20 LE.

Three things were represented: breath, the Nile and fertility as illustrated by the two lungs and windpipe, the East bank, West Bank and the Nile, and finally the testes and penis.

There was a church and mosque on this site. They both respected this site and each other and did not deatroy it. ...

We offered women equality, but they didn't want it

... making a judgement call without really knowing the full story. Learning about the corrupt Government and the way in which the Egyptians, and particularly the Bedouins are treated (or dismissed) is appalling. I can't help but feel that a once successful and thriving Egyptian Empire, has fallen so far. And despite all this, we have had an amazing experience and would encourage anyone to come.
