... men tying their dinghies along side our boat trying to sell scarves and things. Yelling out to you and throwing merchandise up on to the top deck, being total pests!

Day 3 of our tour started with an argument with our new tour guide, Ahmed. It turns out that the tour company's bank rejected our payment because it only accepts US dollars. It would have been really helpful to have been informed about this when I was at the bank / exchange centre in Dubai. I'd had the ...

... ancient mystique feel. The Temple of Hapu has walls covered with hieroglyphics and drawings from Egyptian history. If you don't do anything touristy, Egypt is a pretty cheap place. My lodging ranged from 25 LE ($3.60) - 100 LE (~$15, I splurged on Christmas) and if you eat street food, that's pretty cheap, consisting of koshari (macaroni, lentils, and tomato sauce), shwarmas (a baguette with chicken or beef and vegetables), pita with liver or cow brains, and Egyptian pizza ...

This was our first experience in the country of Egypt. Our tour today was to see the Temples of Karnack and Luxor. The sun was shining and it was going to be a hot one of 104 degrees.


Our first impression was the Port of Safaga where our shipped was docked. It was a bit run down and we noticed that buildings were not complete. We had a three hour drive to Luxor through the desert. At first the mountains were very large ...

... Our bus takes us to the entrance gate where we board a tram that goes up the steep grade to the area of the tombs.

Despite the name, the Valley of the Kings also contains the tombs of powerful nobles as well as the wives and children of both nobles and pharaohs. That means only about 20 of the tombs were actually used for royal burials. Around the time of Ramses I (ca. 1301 BC) construction began in the separate Valley of the Queens. ...
