What a cool experience! Was it difficult to get special permission to view the Stela? I was imagining scenes from various movies as I read this - I can only imagine how eerie that storeroom must have been. I'm sure having an avid imagination doesn't help ;). It's so neat to think of all of the things that must be stored in those types of storerooms in museums everywhere...
Thanks for sharing your adventure!


Even with the mummy, that sounds like a magical experience.



If I were the jealous type, it'd be kicking in right about now.

We are definitely going to have to have the phone chat, and you can tell me all about it...probably the closest I'll ever get to something like it!


Wow - I'm speechless...and a little jealous too.

What a beautifully written post. Thanks so much for sharing. I felt I was there.


What an experience! I know it will be one you treasure forever. So glad to hear you having the time you so deserve!


Geneve -- that storeroom was incredible. There's enough down there to fill another museum entirely of some really precious Egyptian pieces.

Jaspreet -- it was magical but that mummy was still freaking me out.

Stephanie -- we'll talk over tea!

Ruth, I wish you HAD been there with me. I would have stayed longer to study the Stela...

Thanks Dude!
