Almost half way through our trip now, we allowed ourselves a few luxuries in Egypt, including a five day Nile cruise. Which is fitting, given the luxurious and wealthy ways of life lived by the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt, whose tombs we were visiting. During the five days, we saw the temples of Luxor, Karnak, Edfu, Kom-Ombo and Philae, as well as a morning trip to Abu Simbel in the far south of the country. Each had their own history with stories of betrayal, worship, revenge, conquests, love and devotion – all depicted carefully with statues, obelisks and heiroglyphics, some over 4000 years old. Here I’ve compiled the photos from the tour into one set, and hopefully it captures the depth of rich history lining the Nile in Egypt.
