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.

Mike was unable to settle so he went onto the support boat and slept on the stairs. It got pretty cold. I had my beanie and gloves on and was barely warm enough.

Adal is married with three young kids, and he knew a great deal about the tombs and the Egyptian gods and how the whole system worked. But mostly we talked about the things people actually care about, our families and the economy and politics. After the touring he took me to his cousin’s alabaster shop for mint tea, although everyone involved knew I wasn’t buying anything because I surely couldn’t ...
... The first stop was at the High Dam which was the largest dam in the world up until last year when China took the lead. It was built as a power source and to control the water levels to protect Egypt from the annual destructive flood of the Nile, which has been effective as there hasn't been a flood since it's construction in 1960. Next we checked into our cruise boat which was to be home for the next 3 nights. It became evident just how much the tourism industry has ...
... 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 ...
... left $100 bill in her hotel room when the bellhops came to collect her luggage. When she returned to her room, the money was right where she left it. There are good people everywhere, despite the picture the media paints.
I have taken almost 900 pictures in 3 days. I hope I can figure out how to post some soon. But we are having a wonderful time, we are perfectly safe, we are learning so much, and we are making friendships that will last a lifetime.
