Wandering around #Egypt feels like walking through a history book. We remember learning about all the pharaohs in school but they always felt more like fictional characters than real human beings. After walking through their temples and tombs and seeing their mummified bodies up close (eek 😬), these 4000 year-old people feel more real than ever! It really makes you feel small in the grand scheme of things 🙈
A daughter of Akhenaten (r. 1353–1335 BCE) and Queen Nefertiti, she was born to the royal family in the city of 'Amarna. Ankhesenamon was married to Tut'ankhamun and became queen when he succeeded Smenkharéin 1333 BCE. The royal couple ruled only 10 years. Tut'ankhamun was eight years old when he took the throne and Ankhesenamon was 13. At ‘Amarna she was called Ankhesenpa'aten. During her marriage to Tut'ankhamun, she gave birth to two stillborn babies who were buried with the young pharaoh.
The man chosen to succeed Tut'ankhamun was Aya, who was master of horse in Thebes. Ankhesenamon was given to Aya as his bride. Together, they assumed the throne before Tut'ankhamun was buried. Some question has been raised as to the possibility that Aya was the father of Nefertiti, which would have made him Ankhesenamon’s grandfather. Aya died in 1319 BC, but Ankhesenamon disappeared before his death.
Primeira parada em #Aswan no #Egito 🇪🇬 - Templo de Ísis a Deusa da fertilidade.
Às margens do Nilo, ainda antes de chegar, dentro de uma pequena embarcação que nos leva até o templo, fui sentindo a emoção em estar aqui, fui ouvindo atentamente as explicacoes do guia sobre a história dos Deuses do Egito, que é conhecida de todos...o amor entre Ísis e Osíris, o ataque de Set e a vingança de seu filho Horus. Vocês conhecem né?
Além disso, era aqui que a toda poderosa Cleópatra vinha prestar suas homenagens à deusa, devotíssima, ela em seu barco premiadíssimo e claro pomposo, desde lá de Alexandria.

Visita al Templo de Kom Ombo, de los que más me gustó por su historia tan interesante 🧡 la historia radica en que algunos habitantes de la ciudad de Kom Ombo rendían culto en este sitio a Sobek, una divinidad con cabeza de cocodrilo y cuerpo humano y otros habitantes rendían culto a Horus, la divinidad con cabeza de alcon y cuerpo humano. Por lo tanto el templo fue dividido a la mitad para cada uno, a cada uno le pertenecía un lado del templo con su propia puerta de acceso, después se interpretó este hecho como el lado del bien (alcon) y el lado del mal (cocodrilo), así mismo ahí recibían ofrendas.
En la primera fotografía se observa la puerta de acceso del lado de Sobek y en las paredes se encuentran los jeroglíficos con las figuras de ambos dioses😊, que te parece?
Para mi es súper importante no sólo conocer físicamente el sitio, si no la historia detrás del mismo, conociendo la historia puedes valorar y sorprenderte con cada detalle que encuentras en cada templo!!! Esta es mi recomendación si visitas Egipto 🇪🇬 no vayas solo por tomar fotos, ve y asómbrate con cada relato, estos dan sentido a todo.

A tall tale.
What should have been a swiftish 5 hour jolly, turned into a bit of an unbelievable 16 hour marathon. But a Thomas Cook insolvency and detour via Istanbul later, we’d made it to Luxor!
Anyway, the extra traveling was totally worth it as our first stop of our first day was to visit Luxor’s temples.
Wandering amongst the towering 4000 year old columns, covered by ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics was like nothing else. I’ve dreamed of seeing more of this spellbinding country and couldn’t have had a better introduction.
But no time to hang about. Onwards and down the Nile we go...
