Been There, Do This: Temple of Hathor in Dendera, Egypt

On my first trip to the continent of Africa, I visited Cairo and Luxor, Egypt in the middle of the summer. It was, as you can imagine, really, really hot. This came with some advantages though — there were fewer crowds and shorter lines at the region’s most popular tourism sites, including the Temple of Hathor at Dendera.

Whether I am at home or abroad, I love meandering through local food markets to see what the local hands and soil can come up with, and how the local chefs think. Israel’s markets (shuks) are among the world’s best, offering samples of traditional Mediterranean specialties in addition to local novelties inspired by the country’s range of cultures, people and religions.
