May 28: Edfu to Luxor

First 4 photos are from the Temple of Horus (57 BC) at Edfu:

Horus, the falcon god.

Structures opposite the entrance.

After the Temple of Horus I rested in bed most of the afternoon, catching up on sleep and trying to recover from the ailment.  We stopped in Esna for ~2 hours but I stayed on board.  TV on the boat sucked--the BBC signal disappeared when we departed Aswan, leaving us with the same Arabic station on 6 channels.  No CNN since Cairo.
