L) Crossing the Nile

L) Crossing the Nile

The magnificent Temples of Karnak and Luxor are located on the same side of the Nile as the Winter Palace Hotel. On the other side of the Nile is the Necropolis - the City of the Dead. On this day we crossed over so we could visit Hatshepsut's Temple, the Colossi of Memnon, and the Valley of the Tombs of the Kings.

We were the only tourists on this tiny passenger ferry. A second horse drawn carriage met us on the other side to carry us to these sites.

(Man! This was the stuff dreams were made of when I was a kid!)
