Queen Pharaoh Hatshepsut’s after-life digs

July 28, 2010

After seeing the Pyramids, Sphinx, and all that sand we hopped a plane to the middle of nowhere to visit The Valley of the Dead, Queen Hatshepsut’s Temple, Karnak, and Luxor Temple. At the Valley of the Dead, or the Valley of the Kings as it is also known, we got to go inside three of the tombs belonging to various Ramses and it was there that we got to see all the neat hieroglyphics covering walls and ceilings. I was surprised that there was so much color and I can’t imagine how long it took to do all that stone-carving. We were not allowed to take our cameras into any of the tombs and the walls were protected with some sort of plastic or glass so you couldn’t touch them either. We also got to go inside King Tut’s Tomb and see his little shriveled blackened body.

Here is the link to an excerpt of the e-mail I wrote my mom about this part of our trip.  It can also be accessed on the Extras page.
