Laura and Juan at the Temple
Laura and Juan at Colossi of Memnon.
Hathor depicted as a very beautiful cow which was one of her forms being fed by the queen.
the queen herself depicted on the walls of the temple dressed as a Pharaoh with a dark body and a man's dress but she kept her face light to indicate she was a woman. they did not have a word for queen in their language so she made herself King and was depicted accordingly.
Queen Hatshepsut got these trees from the land of Punt and planted them next to her temple. you can see the site of the ancient garden with the remains of the trees.

Even watching the balloons getting ready was an adventure!
It was stunning watching the sun rise over the Luxor Nile Valley from the balloon.
Hot Air Balloon over Luxor: One really felt like one was watching another world from a balloon in a different world!
The balloons are but a speck in a beautiful Nile Valley that awakes with the farmers burning the sugar cane!
