Picking up from Part 12, we went around Karnak Temple and proceeded to move on to the Temple Of Luxor.

If these walls could talk, I can just imagine the wonderful stories that would unfold.

Souvenirs

Finally....Part 13, the final part of my Egypt trip. As I recall the highlights of the trip, I miss the fun I had with friends and also walking amongst the wonders of Egypt. We had a whale of a time buying little souvenirs along the way. Each and every one of us left Egypt with a Nubian bracelet for sure (some with two or three!) apart from snapping up other goodies. Unbelievable and hard to fathom but yet there I was amidst this real life National Geographic documentary. It was a great journey, I'm thankful that I have had a chance to visit Egypt in this lifetime of mine and with good company to boot too!

Your pics are all A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Can't stop looking! :)

WMW, thanks so much for all those wonderful pictures of Egypt. Ya, I felt like a trip down National Geography. Is there any particular reason why those mummys are headless or just mere poor maintenance?

So, 'teacher', which destination you showing me next?! hahaha Great trip!

ilene said...

Oh one more thing - how long you took to download all those lovely pictures onto your blog?

wmw said...

kok : Yes I did, lovely memories.

j2kfm : Yes it was scorching hot. At one point I was totally drained and couldn't speak or had appetite to eat!

Cumi&Ciki : Oh, if you ever go there, must have a local guide. It's not safe to go on your own.

Christy : Really? Will check out your blog for that 13 part trip update :o)

mimid3vils : Oh yes! Simply amazing!

Nic : Yes, a place to go to - at least once in our lifetime!

A feast, everyday : Glad the post encouraged you to give Egypt a try one day.

Christine : Thanks for the compliment. Your Glasgow has its own pretty sights too!

Ilene : Headless as there are vandalism too over there. The heads of the statues are usually the first to go...on the wall, a lot of drawings are defaced too. Next destination? Stay tuned, you'll find out soon...I'm off for another trip later this month. It doesn't take me long to download that. I store my pics on Flickr and copy and paste the HTML codes over to my blog post.
