After a few hours on a bus through Egypt we arrived to Karnak temples in Luxor. All the buildnings and statues are really huge and filled with scriptions and signs. It is so cool!
Interesting to see so much from the egyptian history!
A statue of a farao, and the small teeny tiny infront is his woman. The women were really small back then... ;)....
After lunch we crossed over the Nile!
It has such a mysterious reputation but it didnt feel like a special river.
Very green and dirty and i have heard there are crocodiles in it, i dont know if its true though?
Then we went to the valley of the Kings, where all the tombs are, the most famous one Tutankhamons tomb where hes reamains are even there to see in a glass box.
Offcores it was not allowed to take any pictures, but it was cool to see!
This is Hatshetsuts temple, the only female farao!
And her temple had an amazing view!
Here we are, the study group from TuiNordic!
Long day in Luxor, we came back home around ten in the evening.. But it was so fun to see all the temples and statues, and it was actually really nice on the way home to just drive through the streets to see moore how people live where there are no tourists, no hotels, no restaurants.
The countryside really reminded me of south americas. The houses looked the same and people were sharing the streets with donkeys and cows.
Luxor is really worth a visit if you come to Egypt!
