Our Eid trip to Luxor was very relaxing and fun. Luxor is so green and lush compared to Hurghada so it was a nice change of scenery and of course the Nile is always a great view. I have so many pictures, I'm going to make this a 2 part post. I'll let the pictures and captions do the rest.
|Luxor is famous for the horse drawn carriages.|
|The view from our hotel room balcony.|
|The kids can't wait to go to the pool.|
|This reminded me of that Tom Petty/Alice In Wonderland video|
|The pool is floating in the Nile.|
|View from the pool side.|
|From the hotel room you can see hot air balloons, (we go the next day!!)|
|This was Eid day we went to see some Temples on the West Bank, so over the bridge we went.|
|From the bridge.|
|Colossi of Memnon|
|It's a long walk to the Temple of Hatshepsut. It was pretty hot, I can't believe people come in July.|
|The Temple of Hatshepsut.|
|Finding some shade.|
|The columns had carvings of names and dates from the 1800's and more.|
|The pigeons have made a home up there.|
|The colors here are amazing.|
|Temple of the Nobles, I think....I'm not huge on this stuff, yea it's something to do and interesting to see but you see one temple, you've seen them all, I say.|
|This fallen statue reminded me of Lost. That shows you how much I know about pharohs and all that.|
|Climbing is fun.|
Salwa near some tomb type deals.
I'll post pictures from our hot air balloon ride and more tonight or tomorrow. Blogger takes forever to upload pics.
