However, I have scheduled some entries to […]

Egypt, Archaeology, Antiquities, Bureaucracy

15 July 2007 This and That

Today, my wife was not feeling well. Since it was a rainy Sunday afternoon, we settled into our room with some snacks and watched the Discovery Channel, dozing off here and there.
