Here are a few pictures from our trip to Egypt.  Kathy was a featured speaker at a conference in Cairo, and I went along to help with her bags (this has been my excuse for most of our trips).  The Pyramids and the Sphinx were the highlights.  But a very close second was the Egyptian Museum in downtown Cairo.
 
They say "don't drink the water", which is true,  but I would add "don't eat the raw fruits and veggies."

Below: Pictures taken outside the Egyptian Museum.  You can't take pictures of anything inside where the real treasures are.  Well worth the trip, over 1,700 items from inside the tomb of the boy King Tutankhamun that have never left Egypt.
