Where is the end of the line of busses?

We wokre up very early. It was tuesday's morning. Buss was waiting us near hotel. Our excursion to Luxor was started.
At first we were going to the busses gathering place. A lot of busses were waiting for escort. I think - there were about 60 busses. When all busses were here our way to Luxor started.
Escort - it means armed units in front of and in the end of buss line.
We were going via mountainous area, sun is just rissing up. Beauty, beauty, beauty....

This is description of my first trip tp Luxor :-) Guided excursion :-)

At that moment - february 2005 - i have visited Luxor 4 times. I love this city :-))) And only once i choosed guided tour. Better is travel by public transport :-)

Who are comming?

Not only once we crossed armed posts. :-) Armed men were checking lists of busses passengers. But that happened only when you are going to Luxor by guided tour :-)

Typical panorama :-)

Mountainous are replaced to low land. Unfinished houses - very typical for Egypt ;-)

    Hi Shofja, I am planning to visit Egypt by end of 2009. Luxor is facinating place. I had been in Libya for 7 years but could not visit Egypt due to visa problem. I really missed Egypt!
