2 November 2019 Luxor, Egypt
Greetings from the Valley of the Queens. We spent the day touring the Eternal Homes of the rulers of Egypt’s “New” Kingdom (1500-1000 BC).
The picture on the reverse is of Nefertari, favorite of Pharaoh Ramesses II. Hers is the best preserved of all the tombs and is considered a masterpiece. The wall paintings were so vivid it felt like they had been done yesterday. We were very lucky to have seen it because access is limited to protect the images.
The stamp is of us floating in the Dead Sea.
