From Egypt, with love…

Album of Egypt Trip

Yo! Greeting from Cairo, Egypt!

luxor22

To continue with the story of my previous post… during my flight from Doha to Luxor, I left a little case on the plane… nothing much inside, JUST a spare battery for my digi camera, my ear piece and a SD card 🙁

Not to waste the money ( a 24hrs connection cost US$26 here… ), I shall start loading up the photos and give you guys some details of how my past few days had been…

00:30 hrs

带着稍微疲惫的身躯,我截了辆德士朝机场出发了。。。
抵达的时候,大多数的团友正围着领队,听着解说

01:50 hrs
步入离境室,开始走向坐落在长廊末端的47号登机室。
凌晨时分的机场原来是那么冷清

02:45 hrs
起飞
七小时四十五分钟的飞行时间里,我没离开过坐位,厉害吧?哈!
吃了一餐,玩了两次PSP, 小睡了两回。
其余的时间。。。努力的捱。。。

10:30 hrs Singapore Time
05:30 hrs Doha Time

抵达多哈国际机场。
有一种熟悉的感觉。
两年多前在飞往土耳其时,也曾在这里转机。
飞往Luxor的内陆航班是两个多小时后,于是,我找了个角落,打开电脑,准备上网!

。。。。。。
。。。。。。
是。。慢。。的。。咯。。。
。。。。。。
。。。。。。

更不幸的是。。。我忘了带衔接相机和电脑的cable….!!!
计划告吹。

08:20 hrs Doha Time
再次登机飞往Luxor.
三小时的飞行时间里,同样没离开过坐位。
在这一趟的行程,因为冒失,把一个我用来装耳机,相机的备用储存卡和电池的小盒子,留在机上。。。☹

11:20 hrs Doha Time
10:20 hrs Luxor Time

长途跋涉。
终于抵达目的地
Luxor, 埃及。

Frst stop, Karnak Temple.

The majestic avenue f ram-headed sphinxes which leads to the first pylon of the temple of Karnak. The ram headed sphinx is a symbol of the god Amon ( identified with the ram ) who protects the pharaoh, show between the beast’s front paws.

The Valley of the Kings

In times past this terrifying gorge stood as a place apart from life on earth, set in the midst of sun-burnt rocks. Yet the images man left in its depths are still there, testifying to a world where dignity ad respect reigned, and which gives us food for thought.

The Temple of Hatshepsut

temple of queen hatshepsut 1

This marvelous complex can be seen easily thanks to the restoration works still in course. Created by the architect Senmut, a worthy heir to Imhotep who ad lived 1200 years earlier, it is of great importance in the story of human achievement.

Ice cream! Even when it cost S$6 a piece … And their very own diet coke, Coke Zero!

Colossi of Memnon

This is what the famous stautes of Amenophis III ( Amenhotep ) are called. They are the last remains of the immense mortuary temple bilt at the beginning of the 14th century B.C., a sort of outpost in fertile land of the necropolis which lay behind.
