So I FINALLY found the disc to download the program to download the videos from my new camera. I can now show off some of the ......slightly illegal.......videos I took over there...
Like this one at the Tomb of Inefrt, 5th Dynasty Over 4,500 years old. It is amazing that it is still standing, let alone the fact that you can see some of the paint still on the amazing carvings inside.
The Next two videos show kids working on handmade silk rugs. If you remember the photos from the Egypt trip we visited the factory/school on one of our side trips. The Kids work about 8 hours a day and go to school for about 6. The Local villagers fight to have their kids accepted at the school/factory because they receive a much better education there then at the State Run Schools.....
Can you imagine American Kids going to class for four Hours, Having Lunch, then working eight hours until Dinner then two more hours of class before bed? We really do not know how good we have it!
These two Videos (Above and Bellow) were taken in Aswan. The First shows the Feculla Ride to the Island of Phalae, a Garden of lush plants and flowers surrounding and Amazing temple Dedicated to Hathor (Cow goddess, also of love and music) and Isis, the Queen of the gods. Two of my favorite people Sasha and Jo are featured in the first video and the next one is taken Inside. Now you really were not supposed to take photos in the side temples, but that says nothing for videos.....
Next up the Amazing Hippostyle hall at the Great Temple of Thebes in Luxor.
Then A poorly shot video of some dolphins from our diving adventure in the Red Sea.
And Finally to Warm us up a wonderful Sunset on the Nile from the Deck of the Cruise Ship Neptune.
And Just at the start of the King Crab season I happened to Catch the Wizard docking next to CD's Hubby's Boat the Stimson! You can see Lynn up on the pots with the line and if you listen you can hear Keith Barking some orders.
Ok, Out of here for now. enjoy everyone!
