|: you have captured what looks like an incredible place to be. beautiful photographs...must be breathtaking and mindboggling thinking about what it took to build such structures.
It was quite an achievement for the old Egyptians, considering what means they had on their disposal. Only yesterday I looked up in a book about the Karnak temple how they erected their obelisks. The structure to enable this was by far bigger that the obelisk itself and built from bricks made out of Nile mud. They still use such brick for building today!
: it looks hot. how was the weather?
Often above 30 degrees Celsius. But it got quite cool in the night (below 10 degrees) so the swimming pool on the sun deck always was very refreshing. ;-)
