... 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 ...

Luxor (Thebes), Karnak, and Valley of the Kings

... it's just the size of a city. And was mostly deserted. Travel tip when at the ruins if you want to minimize being bothered. Put in your earphones.

A travel blog entry by ashleydombrow
