“Odd thing to test with but we were in museums all day and cameras weren’t allowed. We go to the pyramids at Giza tomorrow. The Egyptian Museum was incredible. The treasures are extraordinary. This is the museum that has all the treasures from King Tut’s tomb not to mention all the Old Kingdom sculptures in all the art history survey textbooks. After you look at Tut’s gold mask, his solid gold sarcophagus, not to mention all the jewelry you are told what a minor king he was. It’s just that his tomb was never robbed– so all the treasure survived.The Hard Rock Cafe has free Wi-Fi and I just made my first Skype call! Nannette”
