Abu Simbel, Egypt

Postmark illegible, dated 23 May 2009.
Egypt, Abu Simbel and the Nile.


  1. Marvelous !!! A view of the past and current .

  2. While this postcard may have been issued as recently as 2009, the photograph it features is at least as old as 1968. The temple has since been relocated to avoid submersion due to construction of Aswan High Dam, and sadly no longer overlooks the Nile.

  3. One of those places that takes your breath away.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
