Luxor: More Photos

The second tranche of photos from my trusty mobile phone from the trip to Egypt.  These ones are from the second part of the trip to the southern and upper Nile around Luxor.  The history was fantastic and learning about it was fascinating.  Unlike the Giza pyramids, the temples and tombs around Luxor (or Thebes as it was then known) are from the New Kingdom.
