day 11 in Egypt: today, we spent nearly five hours in the blistering sun on an adventure to the West Bank. we visited three mortuary temples located in the Valley of the Kings. [this is where King Tut’s tomb was discovered.] no photos were allowed but i took a few. next, we went to see the mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut [the locals call her “hot chicken soup”], which is literally built into a mountain. then we saw the Memnon statues. at our final stop, we visited the Mortuary Temple of Seti I. everyone wonders how the Giza Pyramids were built, but there are so many other monuments located throughout Egypt that leads one to ask the same exact question. our ancient ancestors were extraordinary and these monuments prove this fact beyond a shadow of a doubt!!!
