I have tried to refrain from blogging about news or current events as this is more or less a personal journal as opposed to a historical chronicle. However, I should mention that my dreams of seeing the pyramid is again being put on hold because of what’s currently happening on the streets of several Egyptian cities. It seems every time I’m considering travel to Egypt, something will invariably happen. The first time was a murder of American tourists, the second time was the kidnapping of foreign tourists (both instances made it difficult to convince loved ones to go with me), and now this. I know it’s quite callous of me to be complaining, as my ‘inconveniences’ are rather trite in comparison to the Egyptians’ plight (ooooh, I sound like Dr. Seuss); but, I’m just wondering out loud, ‘Will I ever get to see the Great Pyramid in my lifetime?’
The Egyptian Government ordered to shut down cell & internet service in an attempt to prevent the people from communicating with each other, and organizing. However, if my government were to cut off my internet access, I think I’d join the protest just because now I have nothing better to do.
Update: Just read that some looters destroyed 2 pharaonic mummies in the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities. Was that really necessary? 😦
