Walk Like an Egyptian...

...is exactly what my mom and I did back in November 2007. It was before I was a part of the blogging world so I figured better late than never! My mom went to an education conference in Egypt and I tagged along as her guest. It was pretty awesome to say the least! I learned more in the week that I was there than any other time in my life. No, I wasn't scared to visit there especially with what's going on in the world...yes, I did get a little hungry because the food is...different...no, I didn't get shots to go over there so I did get pretty flipped out when I thought I got bit by a mosquito and I was going to get West Nile!

Here is a picture of the Pyramids and the Sphinx during a night show. I am so glad we went to the night show because during the day it is soooo commercial, people everywhere taking pictures and wanting you to buy stuff but at night...no one was there and it was so peaceful.



Here is a cool picture of the Pyramids...I literally have like 500 pictures of the pyramids.


This is a picture of a synague that Moses prayed in. So I was in the same room as Moses!?! I was also the same room (not in this picture) as Jesus, Mary and Joseph! How cool is that?


Here is a picture of my mom on a camel in front of the pyramids. The leader of the camel I rode couldn't comprehend that we wanted the pyramids in the back ground!


Here is a picture of the third largest sphinx in Egpyt. It is King Queen Ketchum. Notice the female features like the eyelashes.



Cool pic of camels lined up!


So that was a brief walk down memory lane to Cairo Egpyt circa 2007.

Wow that is too cool. You don't hear about people getting to that part of the world very often. Sounds like it was a trip of a lifetime. I LOVE to travel. I would love to go to Greece so bad....
