The weather in Egypt was WONDERFUL. Having some time to sit with friends was
a wonderful treat.
We toured the Essence Place then in the evening we were ready to see
The Temple of Luxor
now resident in London and owner of Harrods. His son Dodi, died with Diana in

After dinner we were treated to the Luxor Temple at night. The statues and columns are impressive during the daylight but are so much more dramatic when lit at night. The entrance has only one of the original obelisks in front as the other was given to the French residing in the Place de la Concorde in Paris. The French had so much trouble moving it that they did not accept any additional obelisks as gifts! I liked the two colossal statues of Ramses II (The Great) and the wall detail of Alexander the Great becoming Pharaoh.
