It was quite a day.  We ferried across the Nile from Luxor, then rode in vans to the temple in the Valley of the Kings.  A grand spectacle  After spending time in and around the temple itself, along with some others, of course, I wanted to do a bit of wandering.  There was a trail leading up into the rocky hillside above the temple grounds.  Perfect.  I love a heightened perspective.  If not with a group I could have wandered for hours around here.  It was so moving some of us chose to come back at dawn the next day.

I know Las Vegas is quite polarizing.  It’s known as sin city by many; gaudy, too bright, corrupt, etc.  Yet, it’s such a desired destination by so many others.  Whether for gambling or live entertainment or something else it attracts huge crowds of people.  So, are these adult theme parks sacrilege or modern contemporary art?  I didn’t spend a dime on gambling but I sure appreciated the architecture.  What a visual blast!
