From Egypt, with love…

Album of Egypt Trip

Yo! Greeting from Cairo, Egypt!

Luxor, the great city of Thebes, for centuries capital of the empire, famous the world over and called by the Greeks “Thebe of the hundred gates”, began its decline in 672 B.C. when it was sacked by Ashurbanipal.In early centuries of the Christian era, Coptic churches sprang up admdst the ruins, followed by mosques, with the formation of new villages.

The Valley of the Kings

In times past this terrifying gorge stood as a place apart from life on earth, set in the midst of sun-burnt rocks. Yet the images man left in its depths are still there, testifying to a world where dignity ad respect reigned, and which gives us food for thought.

2nd day lunch

The Temple of Hatshepsut

temple of queen hatshepsut 1

This marvelous complex can be seen easily thanks to the restoration works still in course. Created by the architect Senmut, a worthy heir to Imhotep who ad lived 1200 years earlier, it is of great importance in the story of human achievement.

Ice cream! Even when it cost S$6 a piece … And their very own diet coke, Coke Zero!


Colossi of Memnon

This is what the famous stautes of Amenophis III ( Amenhotep ) are called. They are the last remains of the immense mortuary temple bilt at the beginning of the 14th century B.C., a sort of outpost in fertile land of the necropolis which lay behind.
