Our Trip, Part One: Luxor


The first stop on our trip was Luxor. I've never been therebefore. It's beautiful, and so green. Well, because of the Nile, but it's really gorgeous. Here are some pics from our day/night there.

The view of the Nile at the hotel was breathtaking.
The kids. Dawood is Yoyo crazy.

Then we were back on the road!

We visited the mummification museum but no photo's were allowed. It was interesting, The girls were a little grossed out, Dawood thought it was cool. Next stop...Dakhla.

  2. wow, the Luxor temple looks cool at night! Seems also creepy in a way though. I think Luxor was my favorite place we visited in Egypt by far, but of course we didn't make it to the Red Sea coast where you live :-)
    Have you been to Aswan?

    Stacy, yea I guess it does, it didn't feel creepy..but it kinda looks it in the pics. I've never been to Aswan. You?

    Angie Nader, Thanks. I took soooo many.

    Eloquence, Yea I guess most of the main touristy roads of any city in Egypt is clean.

  10. We took a train from Cairo to Luxor and then cruised the Nile to Aswan, stopping in Edfu and Kom Ombo on the way. It was awesome! The Aswan dam is man-made but its a pretty amazing site as well. We also saw a lot of Nubians down there, whose language is somewhat related to Somali!
    The cruise was actually arranged with an Egyptian agency after we were in Egypt, so I'm sure you could set up something similar.
