Jude at the temple of Hatshepsut, Deir el Bahri


Jude went to Hatshepsuts temple today. He looked at all the colonnades, even the ones at the bottom. He loved the heron catching the fish and the donkey of the Queen of Punt. She was really fat and needed a donkey to get about, the Egyptians made fun of her and showed her picture. He saw the myrrh trees on the wall and the remnants of their roots in the ground. He thought making the desert bloom and be cool and shady was cleverer than building the temple. He wishes he had some shade.
