Luxor, Edfu, Kom Ombo, Aswan and Abu Simbel

by Emily Benjamin

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.IMG 3238Output1Output3IMG 3315Output2IMG 3381Output6IMG 3395Output7IMG 3438Output10Output11IMG 3604IMG 3563Output13IMG 3661IMG 3624Output14IMG 3678Output16IMG 3695IMG 3751IMG 3779IMG 3787
