Egypt: Day 6 (28 Oct 2007)

Volume 10, Issue 126; 20 Nov 2007; last modified 08 Oct 2010

Edfu.

Today we saw the Temple of Edfu, dedicated to Horus.

After Edfu, the plan was to cruise to Kom Ombo.

Delays put us into Kom Ombo too late to see the temple tonight, so we'll catch it on the way back. On to Aswan.

Comments

It is not a woodpecker. According to http://ro.wiktionary.org/wiki/pup%C4%83z%C4%83, its Latin name is Upupa epops. Searching by this name, one can find http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hoopoe.

Thanks, Lucian. I fixed the figure caption.
