Every Temple is Special in a Different Way

A travel blog entry by barry0fisher


This posting is a bit longer since it covers 3 days spent around and in Luxor.

Yet competition is fierce for tourists' money as it's essentially the only source, but despite the warnings of overly aggressive tout behavior it …

Aswan, luxor & the nile

... way and then reassembling it at higher ground, on Agilkia Island, took a massive 10 years!

Back at the cruise ship it was time for lunch which was a deliciously filling 5 course meal. Every lunch and dinner on board consisted of 5 courses. After the massive lunch that we ate on the first day, Dane and I would get 1 serve of each course between us to share and it was still too much!
