I tried posting this entry before we left Luxor but it did not work... Enjoy! Veronica
Tonight is our last night in Luxor. We leave for the resort town (Hurghada) tomorrow at 8am. We are staying at the 3 corner's Empiror hotel.
David and I decided to stay put in Hurghada until Oct 27th and
then we will go to Cairo to catch our plan home early on the 28th.
Today we got up early for a 7 km donkey ride to the Valley of the Kings where we saw 3 tumbs. Then we went for an hour hike in the mountains to see the Valley of the Kings and Queens from above. It was beautiful. Then we saw the tomb worker's village and examples of their tombs...again beautiful. Then we road our donkey's back to the ferry where we had delicious lunch before catching the ferry back to the hotel.
This afternoon David and I slept for 2 hours and then lounged at the
pool on the roof of the hotel. The New Emileo hotel is the nicest that we have stayed at to date.
Veronica and David
