While in Paris, I dragged my friends through several stories in the Louvre trying to find the Egyptian mummies. We finally found them, all right – but it wasn’t enough.
One of the girls said she had seen the Tutankhamun exhibit while visiting Egypt… so of course, I was ecstatic when King Tut came to Geneva! Ok, well maybe not his actual mummy but it was exciting never the less.
Although I’d been in the area throughout break, it wasn’t until the last week of the exhibition that I got to go. It was amazing to experience the discovery of the young Pharaoh’s tomb, and too see exact replicas of his treasures and tokens.
It was quite a treat to see a recreation of the throne room and Pharaoh’s chariot. Egypt must have definitely required a lot of artists. Just imagine how stories were constantly told during every reign. Hieroglyphics, statues, writing and all. Art so beautify and carefully created to keep the story of ancient Egypt alive.
Anyways, I’m super hyped up about Egypt and everything. Now all I want to do is pack my backpack and take an adventure through this historic land.
