Luxor :-)
When you say EGYPT everyones first thought is "oh, yes, you have piramids there..." Egypt is not only that. First time when my foot steped in this beautiful country that hot wind I felt blowing in my face turned up my mind and captured my soul. Some strange energy flowed through me and I became "prisoner" of Egy , even i didn't know that in that moment. Of course i gone to Cairo to Giza to see piramids and was amazed and without breath 'cause my mind tried to understand and imagine what was in the heads of that people when they decided to build this magnificant "houses of eternal life" and to reach the Sun. But also Cairo was special experience, showing his many faces, from extremely poor parts of town where you are not sure you'll go alone during day, even night, to modern Cairo where you'll see big modern skyscrapers and houses like you are in New York.
Karnak temple
  City with almost 20 million people, crowdy so much that sometimes you have to be very brave to put your step on the street and try to cross over because traffic is horrible and traffic signs are just useless 'cause they just doesn't care for it :o) But it worth to put your step on and see Cairo and all his shapes and "smell" this city. I'll not spread story of Cairo more 'cause you have to go and see :o) and it would be one loooong story if i start :o)

And of course i gone to Luxor and saw magnificant Karnak temple, Temple of Hatsepsut, Valey of Kings and tombs, Colosus of Memnos -  all this deserved to be seen and you'll enjoy on beautiful green Nile, heart and soul of life in Egy, and spend beautiful time in beduin village listening of they way of life.
Karnak - he just shown up from somewhere and this was meeting of two worlds and big smiles :o)

But soul of Egy are his people and they touched me and captured my soul, so many of them ...  it was just poor man who lives in some corner of Karnak who just shown up from somewhere in temple with big smile just to ask me something and try to earn some pound and give me big hug when heard i'm from ex Yugoslavia 'cause our president Tito and Naser in their time were friends :o) ...  it was sweet child in beduin village who danced with so much heart with us and be just happy even he is so poor but with rich happy soul ... it was dear Sabah, woman i met one day passing by the street in Hurghada and started to talk, and after 2 hours siting with her i knew whole her life as i am her sister, woman who has hard life but heart of lion and big soul ... my dear Muhamed, Hany, Galal, Medhat, Zaki, Mamdouh,Sam... my dear souls and friends during all this years with whom i shared so many beautiful moments, we smiled and cried, danced and wonder, shared our lives like brothers and sister, people who i'll never forget and keep in my heart for ever, even we are fare away, even we can't see each other so often - all of them are the biggest treasure in my soul i bring from Egy, and they are reason i'll back again to Egy whenever i can.
