Apr 5th, Luxor

A long drive last night and the light show got us to bed late. We were up at 4:30 a.m. to start our very long day. Lots to see and we started off with a boat ride to the east side of the Nile.

A short van ride later we were at the launch site for our morning Hot Air Balloon ride over some amazing sites:
