Delightful! You're so fortunate to have been able to visit these places. An old song came to mind when I saw this, something like "I'm losing my head over you!"

It must have been so amazing to see these in person. Your story about Nepal was even more amazing. Thanks for commenting!

When I see a place like this I imagine it back in the days when it was first build and the life which went on around it.

I used to know a lot about Amun, how irritating that I can't recall all the details now! Anyway, as always your travel pictures are a joy to see.

Was there maybe 20 years ago (yikes!) ... after a crazy time in Cairo, Karnak was magical and kind of otherworldly. Thank you for posting this.
