Luxor, Luxor Temple: Matt particlarly liked this carving at the base of a statue. It shows two kings holding what appears to be a rope, but is in fact one stem of papyrus, symbolizing the northern kingdom, and one stem of lotus, symbolizing the southern kingdom. The two stems are intertwined, symbolizing the union of the two kingdoms in one united Egypt. Matt insisted on having this photo taken of us holding hands in front of it to symbolize our unity.
