Did you know: Queen Hapshetsut wanted to be remembered like the rest of the male Kings so when she built her temple, her statues made her look like a man.
Thought of the day: I can't really make a comment on all the pictures but I do look at them have a lot of memories from taking each one. When I pick and choose the photos that go on here it takes a long time cuz there's like 4,000 and there's something that catches my eye whether its the color, framing, nostalgia, or something. So I hope you see the same things that I see in the pictures. Enjoy.
Food for thought:
This is a model of all the tombs in the valley. There are soo many. Too bad we couldn't go into all of them. This is where we saw the most awesome hieroglyphics.
The tombs themselves were pretty intricate. Check out how deep they dig into the mountain. It reminds me of Resident Evil.
Some young hustlers hide in the top of the mountains away from the cops cuz they're not allowed to sell shit to tourists.
These are secret photos from inside the tomb. If you get caught, they take your camera away. Good bye thousands of dollars and memories!
This is the Temple of Hapshetsut. It was a definite highlight. The place is so perfectly symetrical and massive.
But who is this?
I stopped taking photos early on because I just wanted to take it all in. A lot of these photos are courtesy of Toe-Knee and Richard.
Sun down time to sleep cuz we're going on a hot air balloon tomorrow morning. I told we did couplish things. Hahaha! No homo.
