We Are Cruising The Nile River

This was our form of transportation through the towns of Kom Ombo and Edfu when we visited several ancient temples. We are currently on a Riverboat on the Nile River. The whole experience is completely enchanting because everyone has been accommodating and eager to welcome people from all over the world. This trip has been anything but a vacation. It’s a complete adventure with ballooning (not me), sailing, hiking, belly dancing, and sights we have never seen before.

Temples of Ramses II

It’s so surreal to see millennia-old monuments right in front of me. I have seen them for decades in movies. I can’t believe I can actually take a selfie with all of them. What an honor.

We actually visited the temples of Ramses II and his favorite wife, Neferati.The structures are so big and beautiful you just can’t imagine how they ever got built.

We took hundreds of photos to document our visit. We are currently on a Nile cruise ship for three nights going from from Upper Egypt to Lower Egypt. Everyone is lovely and extremely friendly. I hope it lasts.

Graham Hancock on How The Pyramids Were Built

Graham Hancock, a British author and reporter who specializes in pseudoscientific theories, claims no one knows for sure. The video below is just a few minutes long and you will be amazed by what you will hear.

My brother sent me this clip just when I was deciding on what to write for today’s DigiDame post. We are going to Egypt in October so this was of particular interest to me.


Powering up electric cars in Paris.


This is how I visit a museum.

I go straight to the cafeteria, then bookstore and then roof for the best views of a city. When all that is done, I might look at some paintings. Here I am at The Musée d’Orsay in Paris, France.
