The highlight of Luxor can only have been The Karnak Temple.
Its colossal size and excellent preservation makes it a wonder to see.
Funnily enough i think that we may have been slightly
over-excited by the whole thing,
seeing as on numerous occasions we had people coming p to us telling
us what we were doing was Forbidden.
I guessed they were just after Baksheeh (tip)
for hush money, but now i look back on the pictures
i think that they probably had a point.
For example -
Cuddling with ancient monuments - FORBIDDEN
(i'm of the opinion that James Cameron may have got his inspiration for the blue skinned folk of Avatar for these hieroglyphs)
Standing on top of ruins -FORBIDDEN
(apparently when Obama came to Egypt he pointed out this hieroglyph and said it looked a bit like him)
The workers took some time off for lunch so we thought we'd help out -
Sitting on ancient relics- FORBIDDEN
Danny and Ksenjia act out a scene described in tour guide book of human sacrfices - FORBIDDEN
