Yeah yeah I've seen Egypt from Abu Simbal to Alexandria. I did not get a chance to go to Siwa or any other oasis.<quoted text>
By the way what does the Cario Museum have..and what is the price of it please. Oh and have you ever been to the Valley of the Kings if so what was it like. I really want to take a vacation to Egypt.
I honestly don't remember the price but as everything else in Egypt outside of the high end hotels everything is very affordable. Plan on two days for the museum, the mummy room is very cool. Ramses the II is about as close to immotality as a human can get. We're still looking at his dead azz.
Aswan is also worth a stop to see the temple of Philea go at night too. See the laser show at the pyramids, my brotha of color prepared to be hustled by every tout around.
Valley of the kings is ok but all the really good stuff from there is in the museum. Som good heiro's on the walls. Luxor and Karnak are very cool and huge. Largest free standing single stone obilisk and also one still in the quarry that cracked are there to see. Haptepshuts temple is also worth a stop off.
Take out some good travel insurance as the chance being done in by DBLD (death by local driver) are very real.
I've been over and over the anthropologic propoganda of the pro wide nose fat lip facet of what some believe ancients were but I'm not convinced based on what I've seen from the genuine iconography there. And what I've read about the DNA data from the mummies. Meh
The Nubians of the south were (and if you go there yourself) were far different than the north.
I've been to Cairo five times and Ethiopia and the Sudan and what I know is from my own boots on the ground not wishful thinking.
