On my way to the ancient tombs and temples in #Luxor, #Egypt, this woman invited me into her home to see her Egyptian traditional bread oven. She spoke no English and I spoke not a word of Arabic, but somehow we made a connection and before I knew it I was inside her home and she was demonstrating how she rolled and formed the dough before sliding it into the beehive-shaped stone hearth.

Karnak Temple in #Luxor, #Egypt is the second largest ancient religious site in the world, after the Angkor Wat Temple in Siem Reap, Cambodia. This photo shows the Great Hypostyle Hall, which was erected between 1290 and 1224 BC. The 54,000 square foot hall was originally under roof, supported by 134 giant sandstone columns carved in the form of papyrus stalks.

This photo perfectly portrays why the desert landscapes of #WadiRum in #Jordan are often referred to as the Valley of the Moon. I can understand how it got the nickname since to me it conjured images of the red planet, Mars. To learn more click https://holeinthedonut.com/2018/01/10/photo-wadi-rum-jordan-valley-of-the-moon/

A terrifying trip into Mujib Canyon, #Jordan. Friends assured me that any hotel in Jordan could arrange for a tour to #Petra and #WadiRum. But after enduring a trip that had me scared to death at times, my suggestion is to book the journey one piece at a time.
