Dag 72 Luxor Egipte

Luxor is mooi en ‘n regte toeriste bestemming. Ons bly langs die Nyl met al die rivierbote. Kamp is verby en ons mis dit. Besoek die Valley of the Kings met al die Faros se grafkelders. Die interessante een was Tutankhamen se een waar sy mummie nog steeds le. Besoek ook die Karnak en Luxor tempels. Dit voel half onwerklik om hier te staan en te dink ons het gery tot hier. Ons probeer die hotelbestuur se arm draai om ‘n vuurtjie langs die swembad te maak en ons laaste tjoppies te braai, maar die ou kry amper die stuipe.

Luxor is beautiful and a tourist destination in the true sense of the word. We stay next to the Nile with all its river boats. Gone are our days of camping and we are missing it.

We visit the Valley of the Kings with the tombs of the pharaos. Here the most interesting one is the tomb of Tutankhamen where his mummy is still lying. We also visit the temples in Karnak and Luxor.

It feels almost surreal to be standing here and to realize that we drove all the way here.

We try to convince the hotel management to allow us to light a fire and braai the last of our lamb chops, but the man nearly had a fit!
