We arrived in Luxor, Egypt this afternoon.  
The flight was very nice but we experienced some complex routing which added considerable time to our journey down from Sitia, Crete.   The controllers in Egypt are good, and quite easy to work, with but when the military is active their routing becomes difficult as we found out.
It was amazing to travel for more than 3 hours over land and see nothing but orange/brown desert. Then suddenly this green city of Luxor appears out of nowhere.   Looking forward to seeing and learning more about this amazing place.......
We are staying for 3 days then it will be off to Muscat, Oman.
