After we were done in Giza and Saqqarah, we took a sleeper train south to Luxor, Egypt. Up until then, my only knowledge of Luxor was the crappy pyramid hotel in Las Vegas. Come to find out, there are no pyramids in Luxor. This isn’t the first time Vegas has lied to me. I guess the pharaohs learned that building large pyramids to be buried with their riches were pretty easy for tomb robbers to spot, so they started digging out caves to be buried in. The Valley of the Kings has over 60 tombs with more being excavated currently. These tombs date back around 3500 to 3000 years ago and only a few are open to the public. The tour we took gave us access to three. King Tut’s tomb costs extra. The video tries to do justice to how much art is inside of these tombs. This is KV2, the tomb of Ramesses IV. This was by far the most colorful tomb of the three we saw. All of the tombs were hot and crowded, but it’s definitely worth checking out.
