...Camels in Front Of The Pyramids...

Horus was a sun god and had a major influence on the lives of the Egyptians. Our next stop is Kom Ombo here there us a Temple that is totally unique. While symmetry has always been a major element in Egyptian architecture, is taken a step further. This temple is divided between two gods, Sobek and Horus.

This afternoon We take a felucca. Feluccas are the traditional sailboats of the Nile and a neat trip to Kitchners Island, This island is named after Lord Herbert Kitchner, this brings to light another period of Egyptian history. Kitchner served in the British military in Egypt for many years, in 1911 he was named consul general.

The British left their mark on Egypt in many ways, they had a great interest in archaeology. They made many great finds as we know encluding King Tut's Tomb. Which was financed by the British. Today we enjoyed the beautiful gardens that are on Kitchners Island.
