When I read the prompt of the day from our very own BlogFest's host, Jessie Williams of A Crazy Beautiful Disaster, Dear Past Me/Future Me. I was bit puzzled as what to write. Especially Friday is my 'travel day.' As I was constructing my thoughts, all of the sudden, my mind traveled back to Egypt to visit its past and the unknown future ...
There are still couple more places that I like to take you all to in Egypt, such as the Kom Ombo Temple where the inscriptions on the wall have proven that medical practices that are still valid today has existed since 3000 years ago in Egypt as well as the 365 days and leap years that you and I know.

|Can you spot the medical instruments?|
Then there is this Karnak Temple, which is considered the largest temple in Egypt. And what set it apart from others temples and sites in Egypt is that it took about thirty pharaohs to make the temple what it is today.
|The avenues of the Sphinxes|
|Hypostyle Hall--134 enormous columns|
|The Obelisk of Thutmose I, one out of four original obelisks that are still standing today|
Those temples and Obelisks have represented Egypt's past glory, where the greatest civilization was once stood tall. When the archaeologist found the unfinished obelisk, they were left in conundrum. They can't understand how the ancient Egyptians were able to move the huge rock, shaped and carve it then let it standing for thousand of years. And the question --why was the obelisk was left unfinished-- still remains mystery.
Until next stop,
