My Recommendation Tip
The winds of change in Egypt are moving how to restore stolen treasures back to the Egyptian people and the world. More than a dozen treasures stolen from the Egyptian Museum in Cairo were rapidly intercepted/recovered from would be sales to private black market buyers by the Egyptian army.
The Supreme Council of Antiquities has a list of missing items stolen from the museum to help in the restoration efforts by the Egyptians to bring these treasures back for the world to see. Some of the better known pieces are ritual fans and statues that belonged to King Tut, a statue of Akhenaton holding an offering table and amulets and jewelry of Yuya an import official from the time of King Tut.
Tourists and visitors to Egypt can be encouraged that the Egyptian Museum in Cairo has been re-opened to the public. Displays have been very carefully restored for viewing the Pharaonic treasures and artifacts.
My Recommendation Tip
Experience the transformation of the new Egypt first hand and be a part of modern history as you explore ancient Egyptian history.
You will see in the smiles on the faces of Egyptians, as they go about their daily activities, the new view they have of what is now really their country.
There is a new sense of pride and safety. Egyptian people trust in their military whose presence helps ensure continuing security and safety in the emerging new Egypt. Everyday people are looking forward to making sure your time in the new Egypt is enjoyable and safe.
