We have soaked up so much history already!!!
Love LOVE love LOVE love!!!! We love Egypt!
Amongst the many things we did on our first day of sightseeing was explore the Valley Of The Kings! Just by sheer aesthetics it was breathtaking, but then we went beneath the earth and got to visit some of the famous tombs, like the burial place of King Tut Ankh Amun.
We were not expecting to see King Tut's mummified remains, but there they were! And wow!
Most of the riches and artifacts, though, have been taken to the Museum Of Egypt, which we look forward to seeing in Cairo.
As we learned, most of the tombs are in the West Bank because of the ancient Egyptian's respect and worship of the sun, which rises in the east and sets in the west.
We also paid a visit to the ladies in the Valley Of The Queens as well as the Temple Of Queen Hatshepsut, one of the very few women that ruled Egypt.
In a past life, Perez was totally a Pharaoh!
