Egyptian tales in pics - 1

Everything about Egypt is larger than life. Their monuments, their stories, their beliefs.

Since everybody's been asking for pics, I'll keep posting them in batches of 5. (Blogger doesn't allow more than 5 at one go)

1. Huge statues of Ramsis II at the Karnak Temple. The statues are positioned like mummies. This puzzled historians as mummies and the dead are on the west bank. Temples are on the east and has statues in living positions.

2. Temple of Kom Ombu as seen from the deck.

3. Profile of the towering Sphinx

4. Entrance of Karnak Temple

5. The 2nd pyramid, Chephren. We crawled deep inside it. It was a strange feeling.
