Citadel of Qaitbay
The Citadel of Qaitbay [Fort of Qaitbay] is a15th century defensive fortress located on the Mediterrranean sea coast and built upon/from the ruins of the Lighthouse of Alexandria - which was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
When we were on the boat before disembarking for the day, my husband and I spotted a lighthouse (no kidding). From the deck we could see a lighthouse in the direction of the citadel.
So imagine my confusion when I walked up to the Information desk inside the library to ask how I could go to visit the lighthouse. The man behind the desk politely informed me that "the lighthouse" no longer existed and there is no other lighthouse in Alexandria. He added that the Citadel is worth a visit though. And volunteered the information that the government is working on rebuilding the famous Lighthouse of Alexandria. Were we seeing things? I swear my hubs and I saw a lighthouse and thought I'd snapped one - for Ginnie.
Anyone have Flickr and are posting from Flickr? I store my photos here. Today they unfurled their new page layout and along with this I found that I could'nt blog as many photos as I can - just like the way I did in the past, during the old page days. If anyone who uses flickr for blogging has found a way to post multiple images on their blog, I'd really need to speak to you.
So while I sort this out, it looks like one photo a day this will revert to.
