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.

We walk along the promenade at dusk with Michael and Heidi, grabbing some food which overlooks the central square with electric toy cars for the kids, ...

... our 'ah ha’ feelings on entry were diminishing. Now WOW me!
Tombs of the Workers (aka Artisans) and Deir El Madina Temple
I had read that one can walk from the Noble Tombs to Dier El Madina. There are no direction signs but we ran into a guy who pointed us in the right direction. We got to a high spot and could see a stone structure ahead in the distance. "Let’s ...
... and like everywhere else here there is no natural shade and it is quite hot, bring your sunnies, hat and lots of water. It cost 80 Egyptian pounds to enter the valley and visit 3 tombs, an extra 100 Egyptian pounds to see Tutankhamen’s tomb with his real mummified body inside. Ramses the 3rd rock cut tomb was unique in that it had lots of side rooms the size of a small pantry to store his grave goods instead of putting them around his sarcophagus. ...
