Internet Is Down and…

It ate my posts. Just tried a photo and it seems to be working so here goes.

Kom Ombo is a temple the has been on the map for tourists since Thomas Cook first began to bring folks to Egypt from England in the 1900s. The thing that seems to get press is the fact that it is lighted at night. Not a light show, simply lighting of the site.

It was a real disappointment in part because it was so crowded. The other item of interest was the fact that there was a museum that contained a mummy of a crocodile, one of the aspects of the god Ra.

The lightening made some of the carving more readable, but the crowds made it almost impossible to stand long enough to appreciate them. It surely goes down in my book as one site you could easily pass up.
