"If you never go, you'll never know."

As an American public school student it seemed that we studied Egypt to the point of complete familiarity. It actually was kind of taught like it was our original homeland. (Didn't Moses come out of Egypt?) Perhaps this is why I did not expect to be overwhelmed.

I do not care how many films, museums, great picture books, or expositions you have seen, Egypt has so much more to experience. It probably does not matter how you go, you will be changed. I traveled from the south to the north on my own many years ago. About 8 years ago one of my brothers and myself sent my mother on a tour when she was about 70 years old. Three years later she went back again. She enjoyed it just as much the second time.
