Loving Egypt. Spent yesterday visiting Memphis where we scored a look at an amazing statue of Ramses II. Then onto the Step Pyramid of Djoser followed by the Pyramids and the Sphinx. I even spent a whack of dollars on a hand knotted Egyptian rug for my new place. Fingers crossed it actually arrives in Australia. Today we spent a few hours wandering the dusty halls of the Egyptian Museum, what an incredible place. I could go again and still see the same amount of stuff that I'm sure I missed.
The Egyptians have been awesome, such a friendly bunch of people, strangers will pass you in the street and say "Welcome to Egypt" and no they're not trying to get you into a shop or anything like that, they just keep on walking. Not that there aren't many who ARE trying to get you into a shop, I'm just sayin.
oh .... that's mine and my brothers reflection there on the sphinx's butt
We had a private tour guide yesterday for all the pyramid stuff and she was...well lets just say I have fallen in love. Her name is Samiyah and she had the most amazing eyes and was just plain gorgeous, oh and also an archaeologist. Ticked that box. Alas I fear we have no future, as much as she wants to be with me I must set her free. I'll be letting her out of the wardrobe when I leave in a few days, but until then....
