This morning, ride in a horse-drawn cal├Ęche, or carriage, to the Temple of Horus. Dedicated to the falcon-headed god of light, it was built in Edfu during the Ptolemaic Dynasty. This is another of Egypt's best-preserved temples, fronted by a massive wall whose entrance is flanked by two falcon statues. Or, you can choose to visit Edfu market with our resident chef and hear him explain this evening's planned tasting menu. Enjoy more Nile cruising today, marveling at the lush green riverbanks backed by hills of desert sands. (B,L,D),
