Egypt Ancient Monuments
By Beth Hart
Amon el-Gezira hotel (Also spelled Amun el-Gazira) run by the friendly Ahmed Suleiman. Stay on the west bank. Have tea and share stories with Ahmed and family. Fill up on ful and falafel in the Egyptian breakfast. Taxi with Ahmed's brother to the nearby monuments. You will soon realize family is the most important, and there is always someone in the family who does what you’re looking for!
Luxor was a capital of ancient Egypt for a thousand years. Being the burial place of kings, the seat of gods, and home to priests and peasants alike, there are enough ancient artifacts and architecture for even the most avid enthusiasts. But note the contrasts and similarities to Egypt today. Now the most impressive buildings are hotels; Mosques sit on top of monuments (Luxor temple); and boats still crowd both banks of the timeless Nile.
