LoTR == egypt

Walking around in Egypt, several times I felt as though I'd stumbled into a scene from "Lord of the Rings". Behold:

Two statues framing the river into Gondor, from "Fellowship of the Ring":

Two statues framing the entrance into Karnak Temple:

Eowyn's castle in Rohan, from "The Two Towers":

Queen Hatshepsut's mortuary temple, in Luxor:

Hall of pillars in the Mines of Moria, when goblins (and later the balrog) chased Gandalf:

Hall of pillars in Edfu, in southern Egypt:

If only Aragorn had appeared in Egypt, the picture would be complete. Imagine it:

Aragorn looking hot in the movie:

Aragorn cooling off in my hotel room:

Those comparisons were reaching at best. The first one looks nothing, even remotely, like the LOTR set. Maybe you should have been making comparisions to The Mummy instead?
