Land of the Pharaohs [PPP]

Here is a photo from Alexandria Egypt. What a dream come true to walk where Cleopatra ruled. Or to see the great pyramid of Giza or cruise down the Nile! The photo below is of Hieroglyphs in the Luxor Tomb. I would love to visit temples in Karnak and Luxor! Egypt also has great markets and beaches.

My mom (India) named me for the Luxor in Egypt.

She loves the pictures!

I would love to go to Egypt once (just like I would love to go to Greece to see the Acropolis once)

The top picture is indeed in Alexandria -- it is on top of a hill that allegedly used to be an inland part of the great library of Alexandria (If you go into the hillside, in the tunnels, the walls are lined with niches that once held papyrus scrolls) -- the hillside is the site of Pompey's Pillar (seen in the background in this pic) and at the base of the hill was found a large Apis Bull (bull-worship was brought to Alexandria by the Greeks) -- the actual bull statue found there is in the Alexandria Museum (which is one of the best places to visit in Alexandria -- DON'T skip the gift shop - it's tiny tiny but in my opinion the best gift shop in Egypt!)
All that being said, if you have a chance to see more temples along the Nile, or go to Alexandria, my suggestion would be to skip Alexandria and visit more temples!
Okay, I'm done ranting and raving about Egypt...
For now!

Was in Egypt about 10 years ago. So may things to see and do. I would love to go back again.
