The temples of Egypt are really quite incredible and extremely well preserved - so much so that one almost wishes that they were left in their original, crumbling state, even if does mean that many could only be visited with scuba equipment. The Idfu temple has a magnificent wall, perhaps thirty to fifty feet tall and decorated with exceptional characters, surrounding an inner columned structure, This picture is taken in the atrium of the inner structure, the main door of which is guarded by a fearsome granite falcon. However, after taking this picture, I think I started getting overwhelmed by ancient Egyptian structures, and more than anything wanted to simply get some ice cream at the stand out front.

Seen here is the Goddess of Occupational Safety and Health shining down in acceptance upon the sacrificial fire extinguisher.
