    ... The skill of the craftsmanship of the carpenters and metal workers of that era in 1300 BC was pretty incredible. Amazing detail in the engravings, absolute perfection in the work. Tutankhamen was nine years old when he inherited the throne and around the same age at the time of his marriage. It is unknown how he came to die at 18 years of age but there is some evidence to suggest his chief engineer was besotted with his wife. Tutankhamen did not ...

    ... front of the pyramids for the perfect camel and pyramid shot, the boy asked for my camera. He then decided to do some "artistic" photos with a rock in front of the lens that made absolutely no sense, but the hilarity of the situation made me have to keep all pictures.

    ... lie, I will not cheat, I will not steal. All kids wear uniforms and all teachers wear street clothes but cannot wear jeans or t-shirts. Women are expected to dress modestly.

    Next, we were given a culture lesson and instructed NOT to discuss Israel with parents or Egyptian staff. Very touchy subject...we were told there are certain parts of the city we should avoid right now, including the pyramids, downtown Cairo, and Alexandria. All the places I want ...

    ... the grounds. Throughout the next hour or two, he would explain the reasoning behind everything: why the original perimeter wall had fourteen doors but only one functioning, why things face in a certain direction, the beliefs traditions and lives of the Pharaohs, why some statues have a cobra carved into their head-gear (crown, I guess?) and others have a falcon. I'm not going to tell you any of it - you'll have to go and look for yourself. The point I'm making is that without his ...
