Luxor and Karnak

Last day on the Nile today and we visited the temples at Luxor and Karnak. They really are incredible places and this is the third time that we have been here.
It is amazing how time flies, and I think that we were here about 15 and 6 years ago.
You learn something new every time, and today's snippet is that there used to be two obelisks in front of the Luxor Temple, but one of them was given to the French people and is now on display in Paris. 
Apparently they sent a clock in exchange and our guide was most disgusted that it stopped working after only three days!
