I just arrived in the city of Hurghada. It was a 4 hour drive through the middle of the desert from Luxor. We are staying at a beautiful resort right on the Red Sea. I can’t wait to jump in the water tomorrow.
More of what we were up to in Luxor
We got to go on a sunrise balloon ride. It was an early morning but worth it.
They mostly farm sugar cane in this area.
I love how the green just ends then it’s desert for miles
Stephanie bought this Egyptian decorating book and while looking through it she saw pictures from this beautiful hotel just outside of Luxor. We gave then a call they rooms available so off we went. It was so beautiful.
Back to exploring the area
This little girl was so cute.
This is another typical family home near the tombs of the nobles
Stephanie loved this little goat
These little girls followed us al over the place while we were visiting where Katy worked for the last few months
While backed at the hotel I decided to walk out in front of the hotel. The hotel is off the beaten path. It’s funny. It’s this over the top beautiful hotel and right out side of it you have this poor little village. I saw a couple kids playing out front of the hotel so I thought I would grab a couple of pictures and give them some pens. Like i said before the kids love pens. Once I gave out a couple pens kids started coming out of the woodwork. I was getting attacked by kids. The hotel security saw what was going on so he came out and took over.
Most of the homes that these kids live in don’t have running water. I love the smiles that these kids give you. It really puts things in perspective.
Look how excited these kids are getting just to get a pen.
Back inside the hotel
Off to another temple
Time for a donkey ride
We went to the top of this mountain on the donkey’s,don’t jump Korynn
Katy’s donkey decided to relax or a moment
The donkey’s took us through some small farming village on the way back
These kids hanging out in front of their house
Our friend Ali in front of the entrance to his restaurant Africa. We had lunch there just before we left Luxor today.
