the Queens are quite similar from the outside,

the colorful paintings are still nearly as bright as
they were thousands of years ago. It is not allowed to
take photos inside (to protect the colors and to sell
Also at the Luxor Museum it is only allowed
to take photos without flash, that's why this one
didn't turn out well. Other than at the Egypt Museum

The Medinet Habu Temple is not visited by
many tourists (we were alone), even if it is more

Eir el-Medina, the Worker's Village near
Medinet Habu, their tombs are right next to the

seemed to be more important to the workers.
As a volunteer fire fighter I
