Colorful little village
An interesting walk through a small Nubian village. Don't know the name of it, but it seems like a common tourist destination. We were part of a group and we arrived by a very scenic boat ride. We visited a local school and a place where they had some Nile crocodiles. The colorful locals are pushy about selling their items. Don't make eye contact or speak to them if you don't want to buy anything. Overall enjoyed the visit.
The Temple of Edfu was built for 200 years. It was completed from Ptolemy III to Cleopatra's father, Ptolemy XII. Soon after the temple was completed, Egypt became a province of the Roman Empire. Christianity is prevalent, and many temples in Egypt have been destroyed. Perhaps it is the Horus god. This temple is covered by a large wind and sand, thus avoiding this man-made catastrophe, and therefore with Karnak and Luke. Compared with the temple, there are far fewer traces of post-repair here.
The entrance to the temple is a "sincerity room", because the legendary Isis gave birth to Horus where the murals on the walls of the
the delivery room still retain vivid colors. The top of the pillar of the stone pillar is engraved with the image of the god Bes. He is able to drive away evil and protect the women who give birth. Behind the

JOJO’s wonderful trip
At 7 o'clock in the morning, we became the first people to arrive in Abu Simbel today. They have seen countless times of four different ages of Ramses II sitting quietly on TV, staring into the distance, waiting for us. 's arrival
Abu Simbel Temple was originally used to worship the god of creation and death--Puta, the god of the sun--Amon La, the god of kingship--Horus (also known as Laha Lahti), but after the deification of himself, he also stood on the altar with the three great gods. You must know that the three great gods are in the top three in the Egyptian mythology system. Ramses II This is how you put it, which is so high that it breaks through the sky.
Although I can use this temple to deify myself and show myself, in the 100 years after his death, the temple was buried by the yellow sand until May 22, 1813. On the day, the temple only sees the sky. A Swiss traveler named John Ludwig Bookhart arrived in the Nubian area along the Nile River. As he passed the south end of Aswan, he saw a raised giant head in the sand hills on the river bank. This makes the temple reappear in the world.
How to visit Abu Simbel:
Generally attending a day group in Aswan, starting from Aswan at 4am and escorting the police to the Abu Simbel Temple, the temple is away from Aswan 280KM, 3 hours by car, after the 10th visit, return to the unity and return to Aswan at 1pm.
JOJO’s wonderful trip
As you enter the temple our guide showed us the characters that are standing on one leg holding knifes. He said guests to the dances they had at the temple had to do this to prove they were not drunk before they were allowed into the dance. #wintergetaway
As we were cruising the Nile towards Aswan we were lucky enough to see a train go by on shore. So striking against the desert hills. Cruising on a Dahabiya is such a great experience. #wintergetaway
Advertising for Pepsi was everywhere near this Temple! It was really interesting as usually Come is seen more in the places we have visited overseas. Interestingly,, we found most locals drank tea or coffee or fruit juice. not cola based drinks. But the signs were certainly everywhere. #wintergetaway
Our guide said we know the temples in Egypt had sand floors because in this picture we see the King pouring out sand on the floor of the Temple that is being built. The detail was amazing for something thousands of years old. #wintergetaway
There are actually 2 dams in Aswan, this is taken from the old dam or British Dam on the Nubeian area of the city. When the new dam was built many Nubeian people had to relocate. Again it is interesting but not worth a special trip.
This is a well located on the temple grounds. But it was not your type well, people got taxed based on how high water was in it, low water was as low taxes because of drought, high water -high taxes because good rain, super high water- low taxes because it meant a flood had come. #wintergetaway
