The Nile, The Museum, and The Pyramids!!!

The Nile, The Museum, and The Pyramids!!!

Nov 03

Hi!  We’re at The Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village in Rwanda.  After I wrote my last blog when we were in Cairo, we went to the Egyptian Museum.  It was so cool!  We got a guide and he told us about all kinds of artifacts, tombs, and we even saw some mummified pharaohs.   It was really interesting to hear about all these things from thousands of years ago.  We also went to the square where there were shootings during the conflict a couple of weeks ago.  That was kind of spooky.  Also saw The Nile.   Was amazing to think of the history of the Nile and we were right there…

After that we went to the Pyramids of Giza for Buck’s birthday.  It was so amazing!!!  The pyramids are so huge and impressive.  We got to go inside two of them to see the tombs.  The Sphinx is there too, right in front of one of the pyramids. We had a really great time.  I just wish I could’ve seen them back when they were built. 

We filmed some stuff there  for the website which should be up shortly.  The next day we saw some of the first pyramids ever built on our way to the airport. 

We flew all night and through the next day and now we are here!  Some of the kids arrived back from vacation yesterday and we are doing a workshop with them and writing a one-act play that we will perform before we leave later in the month.  Very exciting.   I have to go… I’m off to our first rehearsal with the students of Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village.  More to follow…
