A Conversation for Abu Simbel, Egypt

Been there

This article was approved less than a week after I got back from my holiday in Egypt, and just over 2 weeks after I visited Abu Simbel. Words can't describe the place, and pictures don't do it justice. Of all the places I saw over 2 weeks, Abu Simbel has to be the most awe-inspiring.

We bought a couple of guide books on Abu Simbel while we were away, so that we have some pictures of the interior in case Richard's don't come out. (You aren't allowed to use flash inside the temple - it could affect the quality of the paintings - so Richard had to use timed exposures). However, I would like to get hold of a book on the temple that gives something about it's history and how Egyptologists think it was used. It's completely different from any other temple I saw in Egypt.
