  • Ever had to wake up at 4am just to take a picture? Well if you didn't, you can ask @nathaliemroue how she and her friends did it!

  • Admiring the colossal architecture at Luxor Temple. This large ancient Egyptian temple complex is located on the east bank of the Nile River in the city today known as Luxor (ancient Thebes) and was constructed approximately 1400 BCE. The temple is one of the best preserved of all of the ancient monuments with large amounts of the structure, statuary and relief carvings still intact.
.
It is dedicated to Amon, king of the gods, his consort Mut, and their son Khons. Construction of the temple was begun by the pharaoh Amenhotep III (1390-52 BC) and was completed by Tutankhamen (1336-27 BC) and Horemheb (1323-1295 BC) and then added to by Rameses II (1279-13 BC).
