Way too many cool things happened way too quickly to try to keep it in any particular order. Here is a list of some of the best things we did.
Went to Hatshepsut's very cool temple.
Went to the Valley of the Kings where we toured Tut's tomb, Ramesses III's tomb, Ramesses IX's tomb, Seti I's tomb, and paid extra for Ramesses VI's tomb (one of the coolest), except for poor Kaleb who was dragging by then.
Rode a Sailboat on the Nile.
Rode a carriage through town and shopped at a strange little bazaar.
Went to a tomb where the Book of Abraham may have been found.
Went to the Colossi of Memnon.
Went on a camel safari.
The kids have been so tough, and so great! We have been wearing them out, this really is tiring. They have not been getting enough sleep. Yet they are such troopers and had so much fun, and were so good to work with, and I so, so, so much enjoyed being there with them. The students loved them, and they have been making very good friends with the students.
It is a bit more tiring than I had anticipated. Keeping track of all these students is tougher than I thought it would be. I can't say enough good about this group, these are exceptional, amazing students. Yet some are a bit naive, and can get themselves in trouble pretty easily if we don't keep an eye on them. I have come to feel quite fatherly towards them, and Julianne has adopted them all.
