Super Sunday in the Valley...

...of the Kings, that is. One of the joys of living where we do is the ease with which we can hop a ferry and then a taxi to sites on the West Bank, all in a morning or an afternoon. Yesterday it was an afternoon jaunt to the Valley of the Kings. My first picture shows the path to and the cliffs surrounding the tomb of Thutmose III. The second one is a dramatic view back down the steps one must climb to reach the entrance. It was well worth the effort, however! You can learn more about this tomb by clicking on the title of this post.

  1. Marie,

    I especially liked these pictures from the Valley of the Kings. Unfortunately, when we were there last May, we could only enter three of the tombs. They were fascinating to say the least. Our Egyptologist guide had done his masters project comparing the 10 commandments of Moses to some of the translations of the wall carvings in one of the tombs we entered. Your blog brings back great memories, so thanks for doing this.
