About 400 miles south of Cairo is an eastern bend of the Nile River.  It is here that Luxor (ancient Thebes) is located.  Actually, what most people think of as Luxor is really three different areas.  On the east bank, where the life-giving sun rises, is the "City of the Living".  Here is the town and the Temples of Luxor and Karnak.  On the west bank, where the sun sets, is the "City of Dead" where one finds the Colossi of Memnon, the tombs of the Valleys of the Kings and Queens, the tombs of the Nobles, and Queen Hatshepsut's mortuary temple (Deir al-Madina).
