Album of Egypt Trip
Yo! Greeting from Cairo, Egypt!
To continue with the story of my previous post… during my flight from Doha to Luxor, I left a little case on the plane… nothing much inside, JUST a spare battery for my digi camera, my ear piece and a SD card 🙁
Not to waste the money ( a 24hrs connection cost US$26 here… ), I shall start loading up the photos and give you guys some details of how my past few days had been…
10:30 hrs Singapore Time
05:30 hrs Doha Time
08:20 hrs Doha Time
11:20 hrs Doha Time
10:20 hrs Luxor Time
Frst stop, Karnak Temple.
The majestic avenue f ram-headed sphinxes which leads to the first pylon of the temple of Karnak. The ram headed sphinx is a symbol of the god Amon ( identified with the ram ) who protects the pharaoh, show between the beast’s front paws.
After that, we check in to the cruise which we gonna spend 4 nights…
Next, Luxor Temple.
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.
The Temple of Hatshepsut
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.
Rest and Relax on board the cruise…
to be continue… … 🙂
