Abu Simbel, Egypt

Along the same ‘I want to be Miss Ford’ vein of thought we have Abu Simbel. Abu Simbel was the final resting place of Pharaoh Ramses II. Miss Ford told the class how in the 1960’s with the building of the Aswan High Dam the cultural leaders of the world got together and disassembled both temples. Abu Simbel was reconstructed on a cliff 200 feet above the original site. I couldn’t decide who I wanted to be more, Miss Ford, Pharaoh Ramses II, who warranted his own a big ass temple, or a cultural leader who literally got to move mountains.
