Irynefer TT290

Yesterday, as part of my son's visit here, we had a wander around around the mountain, starting at Deir El Medina.
I was delighted to find that I got the chance to see the tomb of Irynefer (TT290) as Sennedjem closed on Sunday.
We got the tomb to ourselves, although I was disappointed to see a small group of tourists on a minibus taken to the tomb of Inerkhau and then watched as they were herded back to their bus without taking the little extra walk over to the north side of the village to see the newly reopened tomb of Irynefer! For goodness sake........ a ticket includes both tombs, the village itself and the small Hathor temple! Do these guides not want tourists to see anything here?
Anyway, I digress......... the tomb itself was beautiful! Beautifully painted with some excellent scenes depicted. On one wall was an Anubis with a mummified body on a lion headed bed....... lovely....... I particularly liked the paintings of a white wigged man and woman...... (not sure who they were), the painting of Irynefer and his wife with a cute little white cow, and Irynefer drinking from a small lake.
I do now need to do some research and find out more about this tomb, but it was well worth seeing and I would recommend anyone getting the chance to visit should do so.

Sorry I have no pictures..... obviously it was not allowed!
