There are many colorful cities in the world, such as Guanajuato in Mexico, Jodhpur in India, Chefchaouen in Morocco, and I found the ancient and lush Nubian village in the ancient city of Aswan in Egypt. .
Nubians follow the ancient tradition, the exterior walls of each household are painted in a variety of vivid colors, and the unique geometric design patterns echo the structure of the house, most of the top of the house is A dome with an air shaft, this traditional Arabian design has become a source of inspiration for the revivalist architecture, and looks far like a colorful home for aliens.
Nubians are born child painters who combine their usual life with the imagination of the sky and depict it on the wall. Although the unique language and culture have been preserved to this day, there is no text in Nubian, and the house pattern is like their text inheritance. The simple lines and geometric patterns are combined into a mysterious and vivid totem. Misunderstood into the child's imaginary world, and carefully discovered a lot of natural philosophies.
A coffee shop in the Nile River, all the houses are painted in color, the door is made up of several macaron colors, even the bathroom is separated by a rainbow wall, in the room one On the side wall, the gradient blue is cleverly combined by the Nubians.

One of the things that amazes me about the carvings you see is how they where able to be so detailed. You can see the muscles in the legs at this carving at the Temple of Horus,. Just incredible. #wintergetaway

The Temple of Edfu was built for 200 years. It was completed from Ptolemy III to Cleopatra's father, Ptolemy XII. Soon after the temple was completed, Egypt became a province of the Roman Empire. Christianity is prevalent, and many temples in Egypt have been destroyed. Perhaps it is the Horus god. This temple is covered by a large wind and sand, thus avoiding this man-made catastrophe, and therefore with Karnak and Luke. Compared with the temple, there are far fewer traces of post-repair here.
The entrance to the temple is a "sincerity room", because the legendary Isis gave birth to Horus where the murals on the walls of the
