More of Amazing Egypt!

I am currently Jordan. This trip has been so hectic that I am behind in posting photos but they will keep coming. So far the history of Egypt has amazed me. The condition of many places is astounding well considering they are thousands of years old. The government is proactive in restoring and maintaining their ancient treasures.

Here are some photos from the market & shops in Aswan, the felucca boat ride on the Nile River (which I swam in), Kom Ombo Temple, and the Temples of Karnak. More to come after.

Truly, ancient Egyptian monuments have set the bar high when it comes to historic sites & monuments.

Detail. Kom Ombo Temple.
This was a spectacular temple. The height of the columns alone was impressive.

The Temples of Karnak can really make you feel small.
