Otherwise entitled: Temples… and more temples.

We started out the day playing a little catch up, since our felucca hadn’t made it in to Kom Ombo the previous night as planned. Below, the temple at Kom Ombo, a “temple within a temple,” as materials from the original temple lie within the newer one (see lower picture).

After that we headed to the temple at Edfu, a temple to Horus, on our way to Luxor.
Later that day we arrived in Luxor, and saw the temple, the avenue of the sphinxes and the marketplace before turning in for the night (after a quick ice cream!).
Sorry this entry is so brief, but for some reason when I was writing it I had a hard time remembering specifics! Next up is Valley of the Kings though!
