THIS is how the locals greet visitors in Luxor, Egypt.

I have had the great fortune to have spent two seasons in Luxor doing digital restoration work. In between moments of academic concentration, however, a lot of personal learning took place. I invite you to come along for a ride into the adventure, to share the most important experiences I had in Egypt.

On the page that follows, you will find a map of Luxor to explore. I embedded SIX BURIED TREASURES for you to hunt. The location of each of these treasures marks a specific physical and temporal location where something transformative happened to me, to someone else in history, or both. If you don't find them all this trip, well, at least you don't need to find funding to come back for a second try like a real archaeologist!

If you are craving a taste of big city life, you can continue on to a short side trip to Cairo. You will find the path to Cairo through the compass icon at the lower left corner of the Luxor map.

Take plenty of Baraka bottled water. If you are American or European, DON'T EAT ANY LETTUCE along the way! Westerners often get sick from the lettuce. And most importantly, bone up on the Bob Marley lyrics, as you will be expected to sing along in taxis and baladees.

I recommend setting your screen resolution to 1152 x 864 for this journey.
