Entrance to Karnak temple
he continued the building projects after his father Seti I died.
the entrance of the temple is lined with rams on either side. supposedly this ram road connected Karnak temple to Luxor temple 3 km away.
my amazing tour guide explained some basic things first using this miniature replica of the temple site and them showed me the stuff one by one. he was very patient and let me take my time examining the temple.
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.

Youngsters were very curious about visitors at Kom Ombo temple. One of several stops during the cruise.
Boat going through one of the locks at Ensa on the Nile. Interesting process.
View from the deck of our boat. It was great to have the boat only 1/4 occupied. Seemed like all of the boats were suffering from a lack of tourists after the Egypt revolution. It is a great time to visit Egypt because of the lack of crowds.
