Policemen just refused to go there, the one and only time I've visited El Kab !

Sorry, I'm very new on your forum : I don't want to act as I was constantly advertising for my website.... Alain

I'm not really sure why, but my stupid computer wont ever let me connect to your website directly, Twisted Evil I always have to go through a translation program. It's probably just the settings on my computer. Wink Anyway, I did have a point.... While I was trying to find the photos of Ramose's tomb (which I eventually did, and they are beautiful) I came across a couple (well loads actually) of pictures that I found paticularly interesting. The photo of the well that was excavated by Bernard Bruyere is very nice to see, I was really surprised at how big it actually is. Shocked The scenes that you have on your website of Meretseger are very interesting to see too, as it's not a deity I've seen photos of that often. She is one of my favourite goddesses. Razz I hadn't realised that pharaohs were shown being nursed by Meretseger, either. Exclamation

Ailain, I now your website and it is already for a long time in my list of favorite websites Smile Very Happy

Last may I was very lucky because a friend in Luxor, he works for the Supreme Council of Antiquities, arranged a trip to El Kab for me and my girlfriend, (we both travel a lot of times together to Egypt Smile )
We went by train to Edfu, call there the director of the Edfu Temple and he ordered us to come to his office there, and we wait there for the inspector of El Kab to bring us there Exclamation Exclamation It was amazing I can tell you !!

No police escort, only the Inspector, the chauffeur and Fabienne and I. Not one tourist was in the area, so we had everything for ourselfs Smile Smile

It was a really nice adventure, also drink tea together at the office of the director of the Edfu Temple, when we came back we also visit the Temple of Edfu and at the end of the day they bring us back to the trainstation, we were very lucky and very happy !! Very Happy Very Happy

Apart from the archeological interest, it's really a great chance to have egyptian friends, from a human point of view.

Egyptian people are so nice when they consider you as a friend, or as a host (is it english to say that?)

In that case, they would do everything to make you happy.

Much much different (in best) than the frustrating usual "touristic" relationships.

Yeah, my mum's friend absolutely hated the Egyptians for that. She said she'd never be friendly with an Egyptian, and thought the Egyptian idea of 'friendship' was based on how big your wallet is, all about putting on an act in order to squeeze money out of you, and so not a true friendship, but that could just be a touristic thing? Can they be genuinely friendly without asking you for money or trying to flirt with you (if you're a woman)?

Very Happy Those are wonderful photos from both Carla and Alain - thanks for posting them.
I also loved Carla's ones from El Kab, thats a place that has been on my list to visit when it cools down in winter. It certainly helps to have a inspector to call on and smooth the way in those towns, the police can be a pain in the rear. Sounds like you had a great time!

You both should write up some of your travels I love reading about where other people have been Very Happy
