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.

Twilight falls on two memorials on the Gettysburg National Military Park, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Gettysburg was the site of one of the pivotal battles in the American Civil War. Following the war, US states whose troops fought at the battle, on both the Union and Confederate sides, built memorials to those who fought and died or were injured. Each memorial is unique. Visitors can drive through the park and stop at the various memorials.
