Luxor, Aswan, and Abu Simbel for my Eid-al-Fitr Break

So, right after I came back from my 6 day trip to Luxor, Aswan, and Abu Simbel for my Eid-al-Fitr break, I checked my camera and i had taken 500 photos on the dot. That's a lot and for those of you that know me, I'm just a lil too lazy to post them all up, especially, if I had to pick and choose them to post here. The internet here in Egypt is just too slow for me to do that. Hence, if you guys want to see it all, I will have to refer you all to the two small facebook albums i have created. Here are the links:

You need facebook for them, so please feel free to join. It was a phenomenal weekend and once I get the energy to write about, I most definitely will. In the meantime, I wish everyone back home a great belated Eid Mubarak. I had a phenomenal one in the city of Aswan. Plus the trip was a great way to conclude Ramadhan and the transition from not eating for a month to getting great all-you-can eat buffets on the cruise was quite an awkward, but easy one. I look forward to hearing from you all soon and once again, I wish you all the best. I'll be home in two months and I can't wait to see you all then. I can't believe I'm half way done with my studying abroad experience. it's kind of...

PS- Yeah, i felt bad not everyone had access to facebook, so here as some pics from the trip:

Abu Simbel
Sphinx Road from Karnack Temple to Luxor Temple
A model of the Valley of Kings. You can't really take pictures inside the tombs there.
Philae Island Complex Temples
Edfu Temple


PPS - When I get back, ask me about the two stories I have from this trip. One regarding pee-pee and the other regarding a town wedding. Thanks.

belated Eid Mubarak shams!
and yeah man, time flies. It certainly doesn't feel like half time here though, but lemme procrastinate on my hw and calculate how many days are left... 62 days. So, not quite half time (108 days total), but it's past 1/3 so that's good. sweet.
