... a mountain passage overlooking the desert floor dotted by multiple rock outcroppings (see pic below). As a quick side note, Agabat means "wonders" but people often call this area Akabat ("difficult") because this area is so hard to drive in (which we found to be true). While these sites were amazing, the most incredible part of the day was getting to see the white desert. The landscape of the white desert is difficult to describe, but ...
... City Stars Hotel for a one-night stay. It was so grand and beautiful it seemed a shame to be there only for a few hours. We had a farewell buffet dinner with the group and Amr. He was given high praise from everyone and a standing ovation for the wonderful time we spent with him. He made Egyptian History come alive and we learned so much from him.

At these maristans, physicians have access to the ...

Buildings, carvings, paintings, and stuff that I just can't grasp how old it is. It was cool to see in Luxor all the sphinxes that they are restoring to reopen the road between Luxor and Karnak temples (the whole road is lined with sphinxes!) and if my memory is right it is about 2 kilometres long. It was also unreal to see the mummy and ...
