The Temples at Luxor are beautiful.

We had quite an amusing experience early one evening we were wandering around Luxor Temple. We came across what seemed to be hundreds of men rehearsing Opera Aida.

We sat on a high wall overlooking them to watch the impressive rehearsals taking place, when suddenly they all swung around facing directly at us, singing. The first row was only about 4 meters away from us. We just sat there first in shock & embarrassment & then in stitches, laughing. All the Egyptians were all laughing as well..........It was very amusing (~_~)

Looking back I assume the Temple was probably closed for the day, which is why the rehearsals were going on.

Consequently I would love to see the Opera Aida, but I refuse to see it anywhere else but in Egypt!
