    It was a sad little hotel, really. There was a lift that didn't work. our room had dust bunnies all over the place, and the bathroom maybe needed cleaning like, last month. There was slow wifi but they promptly passworded it as soon as they saw my friends iPad. Their restaurant looked like nobody's eaten there for a long time. Their pool looked green and funky so we took a pass on that as well. Oh and there was a girl hanging by the hallway who was always giving us the creepy eye every time we walked by... the only plus is its location. Its a short walk to Luxor Temple and the souq.

    ... of the Kings allows entry into three different tombs, which only 12 of 62 are open at any time and rotated. We saw Rameses IV, Menhubut and Ramses III. We left the Valley to head to another temple dedicated to a former Queen who had all her images dressed as a man to prove that she could rule Egypt just as well as any man. The temple was almost destroyed and a lot of "restoration" work has been done to the temple. To the point that most of the restorations ...

    ... Darren got at least 2 million high fives! Crazy! When we got up to the temple we walked through the ruins with Sam, who told us the story of King Hatshepsut, who was actually a woman. Her very young nephew was supposed to be king, so she sent him off to study religion, then told people she was not a queen, but she was a king, because her father was the god Amon-Ra. And they believed her for some reason... Then when she died, the nephew became king again, and ordered her temple ...

    ... of the 63 tombs. King Ramses 3, 5, 6 and King Tut.
    All of the Royal tomb walls contain stories of religious texts and images and are very well preserved with wonderful rich colors. The walls even contain ancient graffiti by visitors and archeologists.
    A quick stop on the way to the hotel at a local stone factory, a Bedouin dinner, a bit of shopping in the market and our day was done.

    ... the Gates of the Kings and the Palace of Truth but now known as The Valley of the Kings. This is where the pharaohs tombs lay, the resting place for transference to the after life which was considered a far more important destination then the current world. Over 60 tombs have been excavated where they have been cut out of the barren Al-Qurn mountain.

    We travel here early in the morning through the dusty mountains to the entrance of the valley where two ...

    After breakfast we headed off to Karnak Temple which is the largest monument by area in Egypt and the second most important Pharaoh site. It was very impressive with massive gates and pillars, temples and obelisks. Also has a huge spare parts section out to the side!
    After Karnak we headed back to the haven of the boat. The salesmen here in Luxor are hard core and have nearly reduced people to tears! ...
