Fantastic images, how wonderful to be living in Egypt, a place I have only ever read about. But so deep in my imagination I can almost touch the pyramids. Thanks for giving me an insight close at first hand.

Great pictures! Last year I was also in the Valley of the Kings and saw the same temples near Luxor
I couldn't read the last few sentences you wrote in your comment. It looked like Welsh.

I don't know Welsh or Gaelic or any other Celtic language, but I am very interested in those Celtic languages. We were several times in Wales and Cornwall.
