After finishing the dive portion of the trip, we disembarked in El Ghalib (sunset pic) and took the bus to Luxor, for the balloon ride, Falucca boat ride, Valley of the Kings, and Karnak Tour, then off to Cairo to sleep in another hotel prior to our flight back to the states.

So, here are a few final photos; the first is the Valley of the Kings--hot, dry, and oppressive, towered over by a large pyramid shaped mountain, which the Egyptologists claim was why the Pharoahs chose that site for burial.

Following that is a photo showing the vibrant colors adorning the walls and ceiling of one of the tombs.

Then, hieroglyphics from the pillars at Karnak, Sunset at El Ghalib, A Falucca sailboat on the Nile in Luxor (and yes, it was named the "Alaska") and lastly, a night shot from my hotel room in Cairo.

It was the first hotel I ever visited where they had a reception desk on the second floor, as well as the first. Really Hotsy-Totsy. :drinking:
