Another card from Luxor

Markku, my friend from Finland, sent
me another great card from Luxor, Egypt!
The picture shows two statues of the Pharoah,
Amenhotep III. These colossi stood before the mortuary
temple of this great Pharoah. The temple itself, is
no longer standing, but you can see the rectangular
area where it once stood.
Markku said he has been sitting on the banks of the Nile
in bright sunlight. I think that must be very
different from Kouvola, Finland in December!
Thank you, Markku, for another lovely and very interesting card!

These beautiful Egyptian stamps carried

my card from Egypt to Texas!
