We also stopped at the Colossus of Memnon. These statues are amazing in their size but in very poor shape due to repeated flooding, they are all that really remains of the temple of Amenhotep III and are a sad testament to the ravages of time.
We returned to our ship for a little rest and teatime on the sundeck. At 6 o'clock we joined 2 other couples from our group and Ahmed and headed out on a ...
