This morning we joined a 100 bus caravan to the site of Dendara.
Ruth and Ehab helped me hire a private tour guide to make sure that I had someone who knew the language to keep the predacious guards off my back while I thoughtfully wandered the monuments for just the right photograph.
(OMG Thank You R&E!)
Michael turned out to be a delight and was willing to answer our cascade of silly questions about current Egyptian culture that we had been pondering over the last two weeks.
Dendara was the site of worship of the Neter Hwt-her since the earliest times. The present temple was built during the Ptolemaic (Greek 300-30 BCE) era and is patterned after an older Hwt-her temple that stood there.
