Wonderfully presented review of the history and importance of the temples and tombs, and Sufi shrine of the area. I do wish I had such a review before I visited several years ago
I really enjoyed learning about the lives of the people who built the great Luxor monuments and temples. I also enjoyed the video going down into the tomb as I have not been there.
Dr Bajeot presented a great overview of Luxor - her bird's eye level photos of the temples and surrounding area were really helpful. The video's she included were terrific. I recommend her programs highly.
thank you dear Jade for showing me how much has changed since I was there in April 1956. For one thing, the tombs in the Vally of the Kings are well lighted. In 1956, many times we lighted our way shining a mirror so that the sun hit it and the wall.Do you still get to the west side in those lovely sail boats/ I missed seeinng a close up of the pool that had a wonderful dung beetle( scarab) at one corner. I would love to go with you to Luxor one day but I am running out of time - age! thank you , for your entertaining tour.
Our once-in-a-lifetime trip to Egypt was canceled due to COVID 19 restrictions. I cannot decide if Dr. Bajeot's presentation eased that pain or made me even more anxious to visit the ancient sites she shared. It was a wonderfully enjoyable conversation which I highly recommend. This was my fifth Context Conversation, and they have all be enlightening as well as great fun.
