Photographs van Egypt, January 2004

Teije has lived and worked in Egypt for 4 years in the 1980s and would like to return there and it is a new destination for Elisabeth. The south of the country is a great destination in the winter and that's why we first go to Luxor for a week and then to Aswan for another week. Of course we visit all the important centuries-old monuments that can be seen there such as the Valley of the Kings and various temples as Karnak and Philae.
Here all all the photographs of this journey that we use on the website.
