Temple of Karnak

Written By: Gary on April 19, 2006 One Comment

Karnaktall1GarykarnakAfter we flew to Luxor we went to the Temple of Karnak. It was very hot (I finally found a hat to buy) and everyone (and there were lots of people there) were all always trying to get into the shade. They started building this complex 3,000+ years ago and it took over 1,500 years! This place supplied me with a lot of great photos (I just don’t know if I can get them uploaded).

FYI: Luxor contains 1/3 of the world’s monuments (the rest of egypt contains another 1/3), I’m not sure what exactly defines a monument.

    You make me want to quit my job and just be a traveling vagrant. Instead I’m sitting home staring out the window at a very interesting tree. Have you visited to Suez Canal, is it even there anymore?
