35/50.- Luxor, Valley of the Kings, inside a tomb


Here we are, inside one of the tombs. Isn't it amazing? This tomb was built 3500 years ago!

If you want to take photos in the tombs you have to buy a special ticket at the entrance of the valley. At least this is the official version. Another option, not very legal, is to take the photos without the camera ticket, and give a baksheesh (tip) to the temple guard. Their wages are really low, and they definitely deserve some extra money, but you have to know that part of the tickets' money goes to maintain the tombs. One more thing, remember to turn off the camera's flash. This is very important, because the light of the flashes damages the paintings.
