Amazing Ancient Egypt.
By Robert Bard.
All my life I looked forward to visiting the land of the pharaohs, the Egyptian pyramids, and Cleopatra. It was with excitement my wife Lupita and I stepped off the plane to start our adventure this past March. In the May/June of LATINA Style, I shared our experience as we started our journey to discover the mysteries of ancient Egypt, visiting the King Tutankhamun’s traveling exhibit and the great pyramids.
On our adventure to Egypt, we were not only stunned by the Great Pyramid of Giza but also by the beauty of the land.
Egypt is famous for its ancient civilization and some of th e world’s most famous monuments, including the Giza pyramids, the Great Sphinx and the ancient temples dating back thousands of years.
While in Cairo, there is no way around visiting the Egyptian Museum. There is a lot to learn and discover while at the museum. Home to at least 120,000 items of ancient Egyptian antiquities, the Egyptian Museum is one of Cairo’s top attraction.
Visiting Abu Simbel was another unique attraction. Getting to this world heritage site was also an adventure. The huge stone temples are so big that it is a bit overwhelming. The first thing you notice are the four colossal statues carved into the temples that stand over 20 meters high.
For us, heading out to the desert was also an experience. There are many opportunities to head out to the desert and ride a camel. There is no doubt that Egypt is a country with rich culture and history. It is among the top destinations in the world and for sure was an unforgettable experience to visit.
