Yet another temple, this one is dedicated to the falcon god Horus. Like many Egyptian temples, Edfu was buried under sand for hundreds of years until the 18th century.
There are a lot of temples in Egypt, the ancient Egyptians really liked pleasing the Gods. If you're not a history person you might get bored (particularly in that heat), but I am so I really couldn't complain.

It's not just carriages, I also saw loads of bedazzled tractors covered in decoration and flowers and other fancy things. I have no idea why but it's clearly a thing throughout Egypt and I love it.

As a general rule, the street vendors in Egypt didn't really bother me. It got a little frustrating sometimes but nothing I couldn't handle. The temple at Kom Ombo however, was slightly different.
