I left Karnak with a sense of admiration, but without the sense of awe that I seemed to get throughout the ruins of Turkey and Syria. That was something I was still yet to truly experience. There was plenty of time still left in the day, so I started walking towards Luxor Temple.
This temple was once connected to the Karnak temple complex. The city of Luxor has since grown around it, so it made sense for me to leave this for the end of the day.
Once again, the darkening of the skies brought about something much more beautiful in all the ruins. The lamps were all turned on and the stones were bathed in the same warm light as in other parts of Egypt.
