Meeting My Old Friends

It is always nice to catch up with some old friends I previously met while traveling…

I had a great time catching up with my old friends of Osnabrueck (Javier & Raquel), whom I went to the carnival of Cologne in Germany with.

I even had the chance to meet up with my friend Fernando.

My friend Raquel and I, we took a great picture in front of the Temple of Debod.

The Temple of Debod is an ancient dismantled Egyptian temple that was rebuilt in Madrid.

In 1960, UNESCO made an international call to save this world heritage to preserve this rich historical monument.

As a sign of gratitude the Egyptian state donated the temple of Debod to Spain in 1968.
