I'm here because it's a place where I want to be.

What do I do with my life - still pondering that, keep exploring the possibilities I suppose...

I do have another more personal moblog Vivupclose

Take a look at my daughter Beth's website...

food for thought...

Everyone, in some small sacred sanctuary of the self, is nuts. -Leo Rosten, author (1908-1997)

We think caged birds sing, when indeed they cry. -John Webster, playwright (c. 1580-1634)

There are two kinds of light -- the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures. -James Thurber, writer and cartoonist (1894-1961)

The artist brings something into the world that didn't exist before, and he does it without destroying something else. -John Updike, writer (1932-2009)

Some people become so expert at reading between the lines they don't read the lines. -Margaret Millar, novelist (1915-1994)

There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest. -Elie Wiesel, writer, Nobel laureate (b. 1928)

I had several just blue sky shots as I couldn't see anything on my screen!

This man's job was to clean the lamp - post and all and he had a friend to help move the ladder which had a loose rung which they would put back in and kick. At one time there was another man making sure they were doing it properly!

Another lovely red sea holiday tour guide. He was resposible for the organisation of the trip and supplied us all with macdonald cheeseburgers when we stopped to join the convoy to go back across the desert. All brits eat cheeseburgers of course. Not us usually but it was 4 hours since lunch and still 3 hours to returning to a meal at the hotel (they kept the dining room open for us) so we gratefully ate our burgers.

Wish I could have captured more, but there weren't so many speed bumps!

We eventually got back after 10pm!

A long but memorable day. It is possible to stay over in Luxor and make it a 2 day trip - I can see the attraction :)

Temple of Hatshepsut the only female pharoah.

Think we did our visit in the wrong order I would have been more engaged if we had started here, then Valley of the Kings, (where you are not allowed to take photographs) and saved Karnak which was by far the best until last.

Looking at the website below, I can see that I should have looked closer at the statues. What was amazing was how modern it looked. Pictures of the hills around show caves which are also tombs.

Karnak Temple

Unfortunately I misuderstood the guide and thought we had stopped for toilets. The bus had to come back to bring my sun cream and insulin and in my rush to get them (worried about keeping people waiting) I left my camera on the bus.So any pictures I post here are from friends.
The temple is really quite amazing.
1. Is looking back at the sphinx avenue leading up to the temple.
