  • Re: DLCM's Year Abroad (photos)

    Avenue of the Sphinxes and the Temple of Luxor. There used to be twin obelisks in front of this temple, but one was gifted to France and is now in Paris (picture in the paris section of this update)


    A sphinx from the avenue of sphinxes


    Statue of King Tut and his wife


    Thought this was really cool...

      The Colossus of Memnon... This is pretty much a road side attraction like the States has those giant dinosaur statues or whatever. These are right next to a highway


      The name of this temple escapes my mind, but i didn't really have the time to look through it as the entire area was swarming with desert fleas


      More original paint in the temple


      Valley of the Kings where more than 25 pharoahs are buried


      The entrance to king tut's tomb


      Entering the tomb of Ramses I

        Mosque in Cairo


        This clock was given to Egypt by France in thanks for the Obelisk. This clock has never worked

          We took a day trip up to Alexandria.

          Some ruins where Cleopatra's temple once stood


          The harbor where the lighthouse of Alexandria once stood (One of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World)




          All in all it would take me days to talk about my whole trip to Egypt. In one word, it was INCREDIBLE. I would go back anytime

              Wow, just wow. You lucky . Suddenly I'm totally homesick to see you. You'll have to do a slide show for everyone and give a lecture on all the cool stuff you've seen in the last year!

                  About an hour outside of Madrid is the Valley of the Fallen, a memorial to Civil War victims, constructed by Franco.



                  The cross was built from the Granite hollowed out of the mountain below.


                  Great view while hiking up to the cross


                  Statues at the base of the cross


                  And to give you a sense of size...

                        I went down to Granada (southern spain) for a couple days...

                        The Alhambra (one of the final 20 for the new seven wonders of the world... if you don't know what i'm talking about: www.new7wonders.com)


                        Inside the Alhambra






                        This is the room where Columbus proposed his voyage to the spanish king and queen


                        Gardens of the Alhambra

                            My last big trip that i'm going to do while here was to Munich...

                            New town hall


                            Old town hall


                            One of the big plazas


                            Funny story about the town halls is that the new town hall was built in the early 1900s. The old town hall was destroyed in the bombings of world war II and was reconstructed in the 60s. So the old town hall is actually newer than the new town hall.

                              And now the real reason i went to Munich... Neuschwanstein Castle. (the inspiration for Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland)

                                Pictures are AMAZING Emmett! I am very jealous that you got to visit Egypt. Probably a place I will never get to visit...

                                Looking forward to seeing you when you get back.

                                      oooo...the castle pictures. It does look a lot like Sleeping Beauty's Castly (at least the spires and towers).
