A relatively small but well preserved ancient Egyptian Temple sitting in the sun rests its left corner on a masonry retaining wall 15 feet or so above the quiet waters of the Nile - two Arab dhows and their crews with their sails on the decks moored at right foreground - palm trees here and abouts - rocky sunlit horizon.
