Carol, do try your best to go to Abu Simbel while on your travels in Egypt.
The temples there are the most fascinating and impressive I saw in Egypt,
and are absolutely not to be missed. You can read more about it at
Inside one of the temples, you can read the documented story of how the temples were cut up into blocks and moved back about 60 meters, so that they would not end up submerged under water when the Aswan dam was built in the 60's. Read about that at http://www.touregypt.net/abusimbel.htm
