May 9, 2005 - Abu Simble

2:45 am wakeup to catch the bus to Abu Simble!! Three hour bus ride, but absolutely worth it, amazing temples that were moved so that the High dam would not flood it. Three hours back on the bus and then we board our Cruise boat. We will spend the next two days on the Nile. We stop to visit Komombo Temple which was built during the Ptolemaic and Roman periods. The temple is dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek and god Horus.
