Hi from a very HOT and sunny Luxor.
Today I visited Howard Carter's House, really can't believe this wee gem of a museum is free of charge.
Apart from all the exhibits there is an informative video which has been excellently done by an actor portraying Howard Carter telling the story of the discovery of KV62
I took a few photos (sorry i know i still need to rotate some!!!) travel.webshots.com/album/577358527dLTrlH
To anyone planning on visiting Luxor I highly recommend you visit, there were a few children there at the time and they looked to be enjoying seeing some of the "old stuff"
I also spent a few hours in Valley of the Kings, it was busy busy busy with the majority of tombs having queue's (and I got there at 7am!!!)
But, feeling energetic I climbed a wee bit into the hills around KV43 - Tuthmosis 4 and sat for over 30 minutes taking in the simply breathtaking views and watching all the tourists in the valley below.
After that I went to Valley of the Queens, it was now after 12 and unbelievably hot but still enjoyed it.
Am now heading out for dinner and my daily Tahina fix lol!!!!!
And to all those heading out in the next week or so, am keeping my fingers crossed the volcanic ash cloud will not affect your travel plans in any way.
PS - My mum had a go at someone in a tomb who took out their fancy mobile phone and started taking photos - he now knows in no uncertain terms "folk like him have ruined it for everyone" and the guard chased after him - wonder if he was made to pay the 2000LE fine?????
