Thursday Thirteen: Sights in Egypt

Thursday Thirteen
As most of you know, our humans were just in Egypt for 10 days. They saw lots of wonderful and interesting things while they were there. Here are 13 places that they visited while they were in Egypt.

#58 - 13 Places our Humans Visited in Egypt


1. Karnak Temple

2. Luxor Temple

3. Valley of the Kings

4. Cruise on the Nile

5. Hatshepsut's Temple at at Deir el-Bahri

6. Edfu Temple

7. Kom Ombo Temple

8. Philae Temple

9. On a Felucca at Aswan

10. Abu Simbel

11. The Step Pyramid

12. Roman Amphitheatre at Alexandria

13. The Great Sphinx and Pyramid of Khafre

They also saw many other wonderful, interesting sights, but they weren't allowed to bring their cameras into various sites. For example, they saw the wonderful treasures from Tutankhamun's tomb, including the gold funerary mask, and gold sarcophagi, but weren't allowed to take photos inside the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. They also weren't allowed to take photos inside the tombs in the Valley of the Kings, or inside the temples at Abu Simbel.

The expat brothers from Italy wanted to stop in and say ciao to the expat brothers from Germany! Hope you boys are well.

Our human saw your post about YOUR humans going to Egypt. Boy is she green with envy (or maybe just green because it is almost St. Patrick's day)! Our humans hope to get there one day. In the mean time, they will enjoy Egypt through your photos!

Have a great day!
Love,
Opus and Roscoe

Amazing!! In Philadelphia we just had a King Tut exhibit last year. My humans went and saw one of the smaller masks that I think covered the vessel that held his lungs? Not sure, anyhow they said it was amazing so the real thing must have just been astounding!

Ruis said...

Ohh, those are beautiful photos of Egypt and your humans visited so much in 10 days!! Is that your Mom on the Camel (top picture)?

Dragonheart and Merlin, we are so sorry you are upset because we did not visited Munich. Momo's boyfriend Socks and Scylla & Charybdis came with the idea of the adventure and sent out invitations (I think). I was not active in the organization at all because my typist is not such a help lately. But I promise I will talk about it here, at least with my fiance...

Headbutts,
