Family and friends who know us personally know that our greatest joy for the past four years has been our grandson. He stayed overnight with us recently prior to this tour. Almost the first question after he woke up was, “What were the pyramids?” I think his mind was satisfied when I finished the explanation. I promised that I would put him in a picture with us at the pyramids. He willingly posed for me to get a suitable photo.
Traveling with our grandson in our heart.
We sent this photo to him yesterday, and he emailed back his hearty approval. He said that he read the sign in front of the group all by himself. Maybe someday he can come to Egypt with us. What a joy that would be.
And this fits in well with our recent theme of composite creatures. Let him who has understanding receive it.
Today has been a long and busy day. Our group visited the Cairo Museum and the Giza Pyramids. This photo of the group was made on the west side of the Pyramids. In the distance you see some of the buildings of Cairo in the Nile Valley.

Tomorrow morning we have a flight scheduled for Luxor. There, after visiting the Luxor and Karnak Temples, we will begin a four day cruise on the Nile with stops along the way to visit important historical sites.
I am not sure if I will be able to have a good Internet connection during most of that time. Keep checking back.
