Color Your World 2018: 120 Days of Crayola – Wild Blue Yonder

Dusk on the Nile

Looking west across the Nile, Aswan, Egypt

Sunset on the Nile, looking toward the west bank, at Aswan. The lights illuminate the Tombs of the Nobles of Aswan(Qubbet El ‎Hawa), sometimes called the Tombs of the Governors. These ancient rock-cut tombs of governors (nomarchs) and high officials date mainly to the Old and Middle Kingdom, though there are examples as late as the Roman period. The necropolis is still being excavated and significant new tomb and material have been found since 2013. Seven decorated tombs are open to the public. Unfortunately, we didn’t visit them on my tour.
