Many of our days in Egypt were spent learning about the history of the dynastys, their lives and their burial places.
The road to the tombs in the Valley of the Kings and Queens can be hot and strenuous. Water, hats and good walking shoes are a must. With a ticket a visitor is allowed to go into 3 of the many tombs. No photography is allowed inside.
The massive temple of Hatshepsut.
Obelisks within the Temple.
An altar. A guide (not ours!) was leaning on this. Nancy was quick to point out that this is a holy place and that was not acceptable.
Meticulously engraved columns (left) and a beautiful courtyard (right).
