West Bank of the Nile
Arab Republic of Egypt
March 2, 2020
It’s a busy day for me on the West Bank of the Nile in Luxor.
My first stop is at the Colossi of Memnon: two colossal seated statues of Amenhotep III, 14th Century BCE. Adjacent to his legs are carvings of his mother and his wife.
The second stop requires a decision: Do I visit the Valley of the Kings or the Valley of the Queens? My proclivity has always been towards the “working man” so I chose the Valley of the Artisans - the Necropolis of Deir El-Medina.
