Tomb raiding.

... br> Next is a visit to Karnak in the late afternoon. This site is a vast complex of extraordinary temples, pylons, obelisks and sanctuaries. The Lonely Planet referees to it as one of the most incredible sites in the country, so we decide we better check it out. And the site is fairly impressive which showcases the power and prestige of the pharaohs at over 2 square kms in size. The temples were considered the most important site in all of Egypt where ceremonies were held ...

... Thebes was the city of the god Amon. It was the capital of Egypt during the Middle and the New Kingdoms. With the temples and palaces at Karnak and Luxor, and the necropolises of the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens, Thebes is a striking testimony to Egyptian civilization at its height.

We begin our tour at the Temple of Karnak on the East Bank of the Nile. Karnak is huge (50,000 sq. ft.) and dates to 1200 BC. This temple ...

... We climbed all the way to the top of the temple, and them made our way back down admiring each of the levels and the colours of the paintings.
Once we had finished we made our way back to the boat, stopping for a quick photo stop at the Colossi of Memnon - two huge statues, about 18 metres high sitting out in the open in what used to be the largest temple on the West Bank. Built by Amenhotep III, the rest of the temple has completely disappeared due to being ...

... and pot holes in the road I was afraid we might capsize. Dad seemed to really like the ride but I just kept seeing the dirty mattered hair, ribs hanging out and drivers whipping there horses, I thought it was disgusting and I now understand why the light horsemen killed their horses instead of leaving them in Egypt after the war, I cant imagine how they were treated back then. We arrived out the front of the temple to the usual harassment from hawkers as I have decided to call ...

Goodbye felucca, hello Luxor

... vendors again. After the felucca, this was a pain. We ended up just going back to the hotel for a rest.

Once it got dark we were taken to Luxor temple for a night tour. It was spectacular. Seeing the columns lot up and the statues silhouetted was a fantastic way to see the site. The temple was built for the wife of Horus. It was connected to the temple of Horus at the Karnak complex by a 2.5km paved road lined with ...

    I would advise not to stay here especially if you are to get up early for the trip to Abu Simbel in the morning. There is a nightclub on the top floor that is open all night and into the morning. It is very loud. I stay in hostels all the time so I am used to the odd noise now and again but this was just too much. On the good side was the price and you get a room with your own bathroom.
