Believe or not there are parts of Karnak I have not got photos of, taken people there loads of times but not taken photos. So today I spent 3 hours filling my album.
This was my first time going through the new visitors center. it has this great model of the temple.
I had not planned to take any photos of the main tourist path but it was sooooo different because there were only about 10 people on the entire site. To get photos without a tourist in sight was irresistible.
I bumped into Mansour while I was there and he pointed out the cleaned gateway at the Khonsu temple. He said it was now the prettiest gateway in Karnak and I have to say I agree.
It was just as empty when I left, beautiful but sad. Come back tourists.
