    It looks like the Egyptians are getting creative in their attempt to reinvigorate tourism. :smile8:

    Looks different than how they found it originally but then they did move it all to higher ground when they flooded that area . I think its the most complete temple in Egypt, its really quite beautiful.

    You can walk inside them they had access for the priests to go up inside the pylons to put the flags out on the poles at the top.

    Egyptian Archaeologist as far as I can tell , he is also a self proclaimed Pharaoh of everything in Egypt . Women have to be careful he doesn't get them alone in one of his Pyramids.

    ankhs.JPG My latest sterling silver Ankh. Its heavy at 15 grams but not to big , its about the size of the one I posted above but this one is fairly thick in size.. It was very tarnished when it arrived this morning so its been in storage somewhere for quite sometime. I disinfected it and polished it so now it looks like new. I wonder where it has been (?) it is not shop bought and is a custom made one off.
