Egypt - Day 2 - Friday

Edfu & Kom Ombo
After visiting the West Bank on Thursday, we then set sail for Edfu. Edfu Temple is dedicated to Horus (the falcon-headed god) and is one of my favourite temples.

After leaving Edfu we set sail straight away for Kom Ombo, which is quite a small temple, but very interesting as it has the first medical references and mummified crocodiles!!!

Then it was time to set sail for Aswan. Took until late evening to get there. Friday night was an Egyptian-themed night, so me and Stu were in full costume when he proposed - all very romantic under the moonlight :D so I thought I'd add a nice photo of an Egyptian sunset.

More to come soon - hope I'm not boring all you bloggy-types.

Toodles xoxo
