The Temple of Kom Ombo is on the right bank of the Nile in the town of the same name, 30kms north of Assuam, Egypt. The building is unique because of its 'double' design as it was dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek and to the falcon god Horus. Its construction was started by Ptolomy VI (180-145 BC) at the beginning of his reign and added to by other Ptolemys.

Surrounded by valleys with nearby mountais looming overhead, Chichicastenango (2.030m) seems isolated from the rest of Guatemala.
On sundays villagers from through out the region walk for many hours carrying their wares to participate in the commerce here and religious brotherhoods often hold processions.
