I thought you may like to see some photos of what we saw and what we got up to, here goes.
Click on photographs to enlarge.photographs copyright 2007Of course we have to start with the most famous of the tombs - Tutankhamun.
The paintings inside were amazing but you are not allowed to take photographs in any of the tombs because flash photography harms them apparently, and of course you can buy postcards of said paintings!
Here we approaching Hapsetshut temple. Hapsetshut was the woman who was king.
Can you imagine how they built that?
We were able to take photographs of the wall paintings here. The colours are so vibrant even after thousands of years.
Philae was rebuilt on higher ground when it was almost lost in a flood. Read about it here.
These are the ram-headed sphynx at the entrance to Karnak Temple.
After all that hot and dusty sightseeing we took a sail in a felucca. Once we'd set sail the 'boy' got his bag of goods out - well he'd got a captive audience!
Of course it wasn't all sightseeing we had lots of fun too!
Here's my very own Indiana Jones being very brave putting snakes round his neck. I kept well out of the way and used the zoom on the camera!
Making mummies, fun night on the boat.
Of course there was the obligatory 'Traditional' fancy dress party. The shop on the boat sold everything you could possibly need. Now there's a surprise!
Still if my friend Queenie ever has a fancy dress barbeque we have something to wear!
Of course we got to round every day off with a relaxing drink whilst watching the sun set on the Nile.
