Sunrise at Gebel Musa, Egypt

It's not the best shot. After all, this could have been taken anywhere. Still this will get us started as I select more from my recent trip to Egypt.


Gebel Musa (Mt. Sinai), is holy for all the Abrahamic religions (Jews, Christians and Muslims alike) as the place where God gave the ten commandments to Moses. It is the second highest mountain in the region at 2285 m.


I was terribly disappointed that the many souvenir stands near the top didn't have any ten commandment tablets for me to carry down myself. What an experience that'd been!
