Southern Egypt and some evening photos

Watching the scenery go by was gorgeous and made me wonder what life was like along the Nile thousands of years ago.20121123-144758.jpgSpending a few days cruising the Nile wasn’t all just rushing from one ancient place to another there was some downtime as well.

The Temple at Dandra was another amazingly well preserved place. Thank goodness for sandstorms.
