... level the body of water in long sections also helping reduce the risks of floods. The water on the down stream side of the dam can be several meters lower so a lock is used to allow the boats and ships to pass between the two levels of water. It works by boxing the boat between 2 watertight gates that close with the boat inside. Water is then pumped either in or out to raise or lower the boat depending on which direction you are traveling. While all this was going on there ...

... the reception. Bit, apparently the locals like having westerners there, and it was nice to chat with some Egyptians who weren't just trying to sell you stuff. I also did a tour of the West Bank, which includes the Valley of the Kings, Hatshepsut's Temple, and the Temple of Hapu. The tunnels in the Valley of the Kings are pretty impressive due to the art work and color that has remained over the years.

In the Valley of the Kings, sixty two tombs were found prior to 1922 when Howard Carter discovered the tomb of boy king Tutankhamen. The next tomb would not be found until 2005. To say the terrain in the Valley of the Kings is rugged would be a ...

... by a quay built by Marcus Aurelius. Rania told us all about the temple, inparticular the hypostyle hall with a roof held aloft by 24 huge pillars. The colours remaining on the frescos was amazing considering the age of the building. We had some time to look around both inside and out, and then we wandered back to the SS Misr.
