Horus? She hardly knew us!

Posted on Monday 31 December 2007

After the locks we sailed towards Edfu and the Temple of Horus.

We passed many bucolic Nile river scenes.

And many feluccas

We drank lemon juice and vodka.

As the sun was getting ready to set, we reached Edfu and headed off to the Temple of Horus.

Guarded by statues of an angry looking Horus

The temple was well preserved and looked great under the lights

Deep within the temple is a chamber that holds the ceremonial barge

We left Horus and his engravings and returned to the boat for dinner, drinks and sleep.

While we slept, the boat sailed on to Kom Ombo….

    The lighting on that last temple shot is unreal!

    Happy new year
