Our first day in Egypt was magical!!!!
Our adventures took us to the city and surrounding areas of Luxor, where we made some new friends at Luxor Temple (above).
It really is mind-blowing to think that this was built tens of hundreds of years ago!
Though the Luxor Temple is moderate in size, it is most impressive. The attention to detail is astonishing! Even the backs of statues - facings walls - were etched in hieroglyphics and told a story.
We also visited the nearby temple of Karnak, also on the East Bank, which is nearly 200 acres large!
The great temple at the heart of Karnak is so big that St. Peter's, Milan and Notre Dame Cathedrals could be lost within its walls!
Mom and sis were as awed as we were!
