Sometimes travels don't go as planned, as we had already noticed by this point in our trip. For our second day in Luxor, we planned to have a day packed full of sights such as the Valley of the Kings, Valley of the Queens, famous temples, etc. Unfortunately, a travel mate got sick, so we decided we might as well just spend the day relaxing and taking in the heat that England seems to miss out on.
So, I got some sun action as I became good friends with our hotel's rooftop pool and chef.
Hotel review: Royal House Hotel was in a very good location, right beside the Nile and nearby the towering Luxor temple. It didn't have wireless internet, but it had cheap internet in the lobby and had great staff/service. The chef even came in around 4 in the morning the day we left for the airport to cook us up a breakfast-to-go.
As the sun rose, we jumped on a little plane heading for Istanbul, Turkey.
