this is stunning!

Hiya guys

well we are here and ITS AMAZING!!!!!!! I love it, so far i have NO negative feelings or comments about anything (apart from a waiter)

The food is OK, in the hotel itself Breakfast was awesome and the Nile river is breathtaking

We have befriended some local people and they have invited us to their village

so far so good! tonight we are going to the sound and lights show at Karnak Temple and will ask the guide to take us to see Luxor Temple lit up!!!

So, will post later...

Hi Cheryl ....

Take it steady .... savour the sights, don't do 'em too quickly.

A stroll round Luxor Temple by floodlight is worth a whole evening to itself.

Which hotel are you in?

It's so good to hear that you're having a good time - is it like being a child in a sweetie shop with so many things to sample and savour?? lol

You will love Luxor Temple when it's floodlit - I only done this for the first time in May and it was totally awesome!!

Keep the reports coming - if you have time!

I agree with the previous post - be cautious about going to the village with people that you don't know and expecially if it's your first time in Luxor.
