VALLEY OF THE KINGS

These ramshackle block houses are located at the lower part of the hills in Luxor made up of sedimentary rock where the pharaohs of Egypt were buried in chambers carved out of the rock face. It is a dry and arid landscape with not a single vegetation to be seen and I wonder how people survive under such harsh conditions with their farm animals. Their dwellings are quite colorful, however, and make a nice contrast against the monochromatic surroundings.
