My uncle took a two-week tour of Egypt's major monuments in late 2010. He left the country only a short while before "all hell broke loose"(his words)
in the form of the Egyptian Arab Spring, round one. As we all know, during the chaos of the revolution, many archaeological sites were damaged,
museums were looted, and artifacts were stolen. Much was lost, and some of the monuments were irrevocably changed.
Fortunately, my uncle left Egypt with six to seven hundred extremely high-resolution(5184x3456) photographs that were taken just before all that
damage was done.
I only recently found out about his trip, and I asked him if he would send me the photos he took. He did, and having looked through them, I thought I
would post some of them to ATS, for all of my fellow armchair explorers to peruse, enjoy, and discuss.
There are a lot of images, so this is only part one, with more parts to follow. Enjoy!
