Where I stayed
First stop , Luxor Temple at night. With the huge columns, courtyards and statues, the temple area was colossal and seeing it at night illuminated with lights made it all the more beautiful. It was a good choice to see it at night and cooling, too.
The next day, we visited the ever famous Karnak Temple but to be honest, at this point, all the temples looks quite the same to me . Philae Temple is probably the most unique for me because of its island location. All the rest were quite similar and we were getting an overdose of the Eygptian history, pharoahs, queen, gods and goddess.
The day we visited The Valley of the King and Queen was the hottest day we experienced of Egypt and all we wanted to do was get off the sun and into the shade
After a whole morning of sightseeing, we were back at Movenpick. Since Christopher was having his first stomach flu, we decided to just have lunch board instead of going to MacDonalds, which he has been craving since we arrived at Luxor. We said our goodbyes to Rifyat and the rest of the group and especially the Captain , who was really very, very nice and caring. Always making sure we had enough water, taken care of and our regular seats. Au revoir Movenpick
