Just Returned From Egypt (April 9, 2012)

Just returned from 13 days in Egypt.  Though I briefly visited Cairo in the summer of 1970 and spent a morning at the Giza pyramids I didn’t really appreciate it.  This visit was different.  Susan and I feel extremely fortunate to have recently traveled sections of the River Nile and experienced firsthand the rich culture it helped create and maintain.  Below are a few photos – more will be added to permanent sections of the blog.
