Good Day Humboldt County!
Walk like an Egyptian…
I’ve got vacations on my mind lately. Been thinking about going to Southern California to visit relatives and when I read about how the Cleopatra exhibit is at the California Science Center in Los Angeles right now, I’m even more motivated to get down there.
I’ve always been fascinated with Egyptian History. I got to see the Tutankhamun exhibit a few years ago and was very impressed. As a history buff who particularly enjoys the great civilizations like the Egyptians, the Greeks, and the Romans, this is an opportunity that can’t be passed up. Especially as how these artifacts may never come back to this country again.
“Two major exhibits of ancient artifacts relating to the best-known figures from ancient Egypt, King Tut and Cleopatra, are in the last stages of their U.S. tours — and their departure could signal the end of an era.
"Cleopatra: The Exhibition" opened at the California Science Center in Los Angeles on Wednesday, while "Tutankhamun: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs" began its run at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle yesterday. By the end of next year, the more than 250 artifacts from the two exhibitions will be back in Egypt, possibly for good.” (Source)
Time for me to walk on down the road….
