You can't put life on hold, it doesn't wait for you.
Sunrise from Lower Egypt (Cairo) to sunset here in modern day Luxor or Thebes during ancient times. Sunflower as their symbol, Luxor on the West Bank is surrounded by mortuary temples, from Valley of the Kings, Queens and Nobles. It's a wonderful experience to see the tombs of Pharaohs, inside the walls are written stories of the kings through hieroglyphics all throughout his lifetime (pictures are not allowed inside the tombs and Valley of the Kings). Queen Hatshepsut is one of the famous rulers of Egypt, since she is the foremost of all the noble ladies. She ruled like a king and carrying the symbol falcon. This temple is built just for her, sending expeditions to get different types of materials in Africa.
We have surely traveled the main cities here in Egypt for a span of 10 days and like all journeys, it has an end. This was our last stop. Make sure to add Egypt on your plethora of bucket let. It's just simply amazing. I am marvelled by it's antiquity and history. For me, Egyptian civilization was not just a development in the course of history. It was a legacy.
