A trip through the Nile and the Desert, Egypt

The Egyptian tour guide told me this is a “once in a lifetime” trip. That made me think about the passing of time and death. Pharaohs built their tombs in the form of Pyramids when they were alive. The enigma is still there, it follows you while traveling on a cruise trough the Nile from Luxor to Aswan or spending hours in a van heading to Abu Simbe through the desert. I hurried to take pictures of every temple, disappeared civilizations and statues of gods sitting on stones of muted power.
