November 2007 - Cairo Egypt
More Egypt treasures.
We visited Luxor when we were on the Nile cruise in Egypt in 2007. It was quite spectacular and the size is immense. It was late afternoon when we visited.
It is close to the Nile and laid out parallel to the riverbank. The temple was built by Amenhotep III (1390-52 BC) but completed by Tutankhamun (1336-27 BC) and Horemheb (1323-1295 BC) and then added to by Rameses II (1279-13 BC).
I spotted these kids watching us from a nearby school.
In the distance as we left Luxor.
Once we got back to the ship a few of us decided to check out Luxor before dinner.
Back on board for dinner. Cool looking label.
