Each month Paula gives us five words to display as we like, whether it be one word or all, one photo or many. The words this month are: crepuscular, coded, lofty, scintillating, and detox
Crepuscular views are seen at twilight and the unfinished buildings are stark against the orange sky.
Thank goodness for the Rosetta Stone that unlocked the code allowing heiroglyphics to be read which in turn unlocked the ancient history of Egypt.
Whether it was guards surveying from their lofty positions high above the crowds milling in the ancient temples
or tourists aloft looking down on the sights of Luxor, the Valley of the Kings and the great expanse of the Sahara with the Nile snaking its way through the desert valley being aloft was the best way to observe.
Scintillate – emit flashes of light; sparkle. The whirling dervish satisfied this criteria
as did a 2am bus ride into the Sahara.
Not only did the glass bottles catch the light and emit flashes of light the essential oils scintillated the senses.
The Egyptian diet which was predominantly vegetarian would have been a good way to detox.
