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.

... cafe for more shisha and Egyptian tea with Ali and our Caleche driver whilst we discussed which tours we would like to do and agreed on a very reasonable price.

He was considered the master of the sky, God of the bright sun and is depicted with his head in the form of a falcon. It is Egypt's most intact temple with Egypt's most intact nileometer - the height of the Nile river was measured and would determine the amount ...
... his name replaced all through the carvings and pictures, and extended the tomb even further to be his own tomb! Greedy! When we'd finished walking through that one, the others went into Tutankhamen's tomb and we went into Rameses IX. We were followed (like in all of them) by the guard, who kept pointing at different scenes on the walls and telling us about them, but this guy was just making up random things, which we had already been told about by Sam, then tried to get us to ...
... one is a 'party temple' where the people of Egypt used to celebrate various festive occasions.
We then visited Animal Care Egypt (ACE) which is a charity organization set up 6 years ago by two English ladies. It cares for all animals in Luxor but mainly working animals such as donkeys and horses. The owners are able to bring their animals to the hospital and leave them ...
... reliefs depicting the advent and defeat of the Sea Peoples during the reign of Ramesses III. The temple is about 75,350 square feet of decorated wall reliefs. Its walls are very well preserved and it is completely enclosed by a massive mudbrick wall. It was amazing to look at all the well preserved colors, both here and in the tombs in the Valley of the Kings.
Following our guided tour we headed back to the other side of the Nile ...
