Luxor Temple, Views from my roof balcony

The Nile at 5.30 in the afternoon.
.
Direct from my roof there is the Luxor Temple with the  obelisk,    the other obelisk is in Paris 
.
sundown over the Nile and the Temple 
.
The roof pigeons these spend most of their day  sitting on the Temple walls  
.

.
the young kestrel  that was hatched in the Mosque near the temple its parents are on .http://birdinginegypt.blogspot.com/2010/02/lanner-falcon.html 
.
A rather wind swept Hooded crow on the sat dish, 
.
looking down on Karnak street  a horse delivering food to the calash horses. 

.
the table my kind  landlord left in my  flat  is still on the stairs its been there for 2 months and it will be there for the foreseeable future,

Then he wonders why we have rats running around the place.

there are only 5 hens up on the roof and the 20 pigeons do not like stale bread in a lump.
.
Looking down on hassle street   the carriage drivers trying to convince the tourist luxor market is far away  in fact its 50 yards away behind my block.
.
How many sales men does it take to sell rubbish papyrus.   well eight today  and the number is steadily growing,  
.
The old house across the lane  with its load of rubbish
,
 Egyptians it seems are hoarders of rubbish   
.
 The turtle doves are nesting somewhere near my roof  one lot has already had its  fledgelings .
