In May, 2007 I took Mom and Dad with me to Egypt. We visited Cairo and stayed at the Mena House (our balcony overlooked the Giza Pyramids), Alexander, Luxor, Aswan, Abu Simbel and cruised down the Nile River. Although it was hot, our Egyptologist was excellent. She had us up early and out to visit the sites before the sweltering sun melted us. She also had wonderful and exciting stories about all of the Kings and Pharaohs. It was so cool she taught us how to read the cartouche carvings in the walls.
