We took a domestic flight to Luxor.
When we arrived Cairo at 3:50 am, it was dark; therefore, I couldn’t see the city.
Now it’s 6:15 am and we can see the city of Cairo clearly.
We see houses in desert.
I enjoyed juice and cookies on the flight.
And these are also written in Arabic.
I enjoyed views from plane.
The landscape is breath taking and reminded me of Grand Canyon.
These landscapes might have created by Great Nile River.
We can clearly witness bless from Nike River; so rich and green.
This is town of Luxor.
And we landed Luxor International Airport after one hour journey.
I’m glad to know that my suitcase also arrived Luxor International Airport with me.
I started sightseeing in Luxor.
First visited Karnak Temple.
There are mini Sphinx to receive us.
There are few theories for construction method of gates.
These sands/rocks support one of theories that old Egyptians made a slope to build higher.
This is a papyrus columns.
There are a total of ten papyrus columns on two sides to be lined symmetry.
There is a section with 134 papyrus columns..
These used to be painted in nice colours.
After walking through Papyrus Columns; there are two Obelisks.
There is one wall full of Hieroglyph.
These are nice views of the Obelisk.
At the back, there is a road leading to Luxor Temple which is under the repair.
There is a Scarab.
According to the guide, if we walk around the Scarab reverse clock wise for three times, it will being good luck, but this matter is not written on the Scarab.
Nonetheless, I walked to wish for good luck. hahaha
It has been a long day because after landing in Cairo, we continued sightseeing.
I will continue the second half day in next blog.
