Egypt Holiday memories Part 3


By speed boat it went to the Valley of the Queens.

First we visited 3 Toombs.

Toombs of Rameses I, Rameses III and Merenptah

My favourite was the smallest of Rameses I as the colours were best preserved.

Next was Hatshepsut’s Temple

A very impressive temple.

Hatshepsut is portrayed with calf ears.

Hatshepsut dealt with Myrrh trees – shipped them out to other places.

This is an old remaining myrrh tree root at the foot of the temple.

On the way back we stopped by the 2 Collosi of Memnon

A vacation spot out of season 
always has a  
very special magic.
