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 ...

Valley of the Kings

... to sleep for another couple of hours or so, there was a rest stop. We got off and stretched our cramped legs, then I got back on while Darren stayed outside for a bit. Apparently while he was out there he watched some guys trying to get a camel off a trailer who didn't want to move, so they actually pushed it right off and it landed on its side! Apparently it was screaming something shocking too, the poor thing! So cruel! We left not long later, and I got maybe an hour of sleep, and Darren got ...

Luxor & the Sun Boat III

... Our bus takes us to the entrance gate where we board a tram that goes up the steep grade to the area of the tombs.

Despite the name, the Valley of the Kings also contains the tombs of powerful nobles as well as the wives and children of both nobles and pharaohs. That means only about 20 of the tombs were actually used for royal burials. Around the time of Ramses I (ca. 1301 BC) construction began in the separate Valley of the Queens. ...

... was the most important place of worship in all Egypt during the height of Theban power and was called 'Ipet-Isut' which means 'The most perfect of places' - it certainly was!.
Rania gave us a really good talk through the history of the temples, which were built, added to and restored over a period of 1500 years. There was plenty to see and it was one of the most interesting places we have seen so far.
Back to the boat and plenty of time to get ready for ...

... the avenue of sphinxes at night is possible at night it just wasn’t the same with poor lighting. I found it difficult to see them clearly or to judge the length as they were not all lit. The temple itself was huge with numerous gigantic columns most of them defaced or without decoration.

Luxor temple was mainly constructed by two Pharaohs Amenophis the third and Ramses the Second is was dedicated to the gods Amon-Min, Mut and Khonsu. The temple was lost under a ...

    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.
