A local friend made the reservation for me. It was fine as far as service and cleanliness. I just would've prefered staying in different location. It is really in middle of nowhere.

... Sound and Light Show at Karnak Temple which we choose not to attend. At 9:00 pm there was entertainment in the Abstract Lounge. A Traditional Belly Dancer and a Whirling Dervish performed.

During this time the Pharaohs lost the delta and were losing more ground to southern Nubians. The Hyksos invaders introduced the wheel and using horse and chariot. Their tombs were hidden in the valley of the Kings and have been uncovered. So they know ...

The pyramids were awe inspiring. We got to go down inside Khafran's pyramid to his burial chamber and some side offering chambers. No hieroglyphs but impressive none the less. Khafran was a cheeky little sod. He wanted a bigger pyramid than his dad (Cheops). To stay respectful to his dad he built a ...
