This past winter break, Jared and I spent almost 2 weeks in Egypt. We traveled to different parts of Egypt like, Cairo, Luxor, Edfu, Aswan, and Sharm El Sheak. We had so much fun and left with a better knowledge of the Egyptian history.
The next morning was really tough. We had to get on a plane at 5:00am to fly to Aswan. There, we got to see a damn that was built on the Nile River and visit a temple that was dedicated to the Goddess Isis. It was amazing to learn that the temple was moved from its origional location, brick by brick, to preserve it from the Nile River. After visiting the temple we checked into our room on our cruise ship. We spent 3 nights on this small cruise ship floating down the Nile. During this time we visited more temples and eventually ended up in Luxor. I Luxor we took a carriage ride to see the different area's of the city. We saw where the rich, middle class, and poor live. While in Luxor we visited the Karnak temple, which was huge!!! It took about 2,000 years to build. At night we visited the Luxor temple, which was aboslutely beautiful!
