... and about 45 pharaohs are (were) entombed there. Unfortunately no photography is allowed and hence no accompanying photos of this stop. Despite the early start it was still very hot and by the time we left temps were again in the mid 30's.

Sad to have to miss the overnight trip to Lexus and hot air balloon ride. Sheila decided not to go without me despite my assurances that I would be OK.
