New visitor statistics for 2012

Just a very few more of my 600 photos from Egypt.

 Abu Simbel - cut into the rock - absolutely breathtaking. We had to drive over three and a half hours into the Sahara desert to visit this - well worth the drive and the heat. It was moved several years ago (the move took years to complete) and re-built in a higher spot to prevent it being covered by water when they created the Aswan High Dam.
Franco and me  outside the temple at  Edfu.
 A Sphinx in Memphis.
 Karnak Temple in Luxor
 The Step Pyramids in Memphis - older even than the Great Pyramids.
 The Aswan High Dam - taken from above.
Salahadin's Citadel outside Cairo

We weren't able to photograph in  the Valley of the Kings or the Valley of the Queens which was very sad but we have lots of postcards to remind us of what we saw there.
Hope you like this small selection.

Fabulous pics Yvonne. Love the one with you and Franco together. What a shame you couldn't take your own pics, and had to buy postcards, I don't know about you, but I never feel it's the same.

Hugs
