Day Two Point Five and Three

We finally set sail. Our home for four days is a fairly legit little cruise ship, complete with Nile views, a sundeck, buffet dining and in-room towel art.

Our first port of call was an evening visit to Kom Ombo Temple. We were treated with a gorgeous full moon and had a shadow-fun photoshoot.

The following morning, we arrived in Edfu and traveled by horse drawn carriage to the Temple of Horus, the falcon headed god responsible for flying the sun across the sky. It's truly astonishing to see the size of these temples in person, the front wall towers impossibly high over visitors trying desperately to capture it's magnificence on camera.

Again, look how small the people are!

We had some more photoshoot fun, then I showed off my carriage driving skills behind the reigns.
