King Tut

I really really really want to see the new King Tut exhibit.

I missed the exhibit when it came to New York 30 years ago. Drew says it was magnificent. He says we "have" to go sometime this summer. I agree.

In 6th grade, when we studied ancient Egypt, I did a book report and presentation to the class on Tut's tomb. I have always been fascinated by Tut's story, and the story of Howard Carter, who discovered the tomb in 1922.

I am so excited.

My dad, who hated lines, stood in line for six hours to get tickets back in 1977. We got to experience the exhibit in January 1978 and I still have all the replica pieces he bought, because he was fascinated by the Egyptians.

Enjoy. If it's anything like that time at the MMA, you will love it-especially in the shadow of the temple of Dendur.
