cairo to luxor

the day before yesterday we left the miramees and said good bye to sherif and ahmed who were really nice staff there (if your in cairo then stay there however it is not good quality but
the nice people make up for it definitally and its cheap). to get to the train we took the metro and it was stuffed to capasity people were struggling to get on and not fall out the
doors when they opened, one man said for a joke "welcome to egypt". when we got to the train it was a let down, we were in first class (things are really cheap here) and the
seats were not very good the dinner tabes were dirty and smelt like somthing died on them and dads chair was broken but we got to luxor eventually!
in luxor and visited a temple called the temples of Karnack and it was quite good but the heat made it dificult to walk around as we had to
stop and sit in the shade every 40 metres. at the temple we saw old ruins and paintings, a tourist policeman showed us some paintings however after he asked for a tip (its illegal
to ask for tips if your in uniform!). the people trying to sell things there didnt hassle us much however i saw a woman and her son being followed by a man selling fake statues.
yesterday we went on a boat threw the nile to the west bank and had fat man tryed to give us a donkey ride but we wanted horses so we went to some stables and the horses there were really good quality
they had lots of food and had big muscles, dads horse was a stallion and cept trying to buck him off so that he could go run by him self! the horse ride took us to the temple of hap shet soot
but we were too hot to go in so we had a rest and made our way back, on the way back we got the horses into a canter and mine went the fastest because if dad let his run fast it would try to buck him.
after the horse ride we went back to the hotel.
