... on Friday, so the weekend falls Friday/Saturday. I'm sure it will take some time to get used to going to work on Sunday, but I'm I will get used to it.

Today is Friday - Sabbath in Egypt. My roomies, one other teacher and I made a plan to visit one more 'maga' store together, knowing that many things would be closed today.

We spent quite a while looking round the ground floor of the museum, seeing all sorts of things including a replica of the Rosetta Stone, statues of Akhenaten and Canopic jars used to store the organs of the dead after mummification. Then Bassem took us to the first floor and showed us where to find the 'King Tut rooms' before letting us have some free time to explore. We went to look at the ...

... We left on our travels with Samir, the "driver", Fred the Horse and Khyam our guide/minder. The carriage ride was extremely bouncy but we did, quite rapidly, get accustomed to it! This certainly made the best use of time and effort and we saw places and sites that we would not otherwise have reached.
