This was an awesome visit. The visit to the small farm actually helped bring a true appreciation for life.

This was a terrific trip. Stopped at the May Dom pyramid and were able to climb into the burial chamber. I think not many people visit this pyramid. Fayoum still is using the waterwheels although not as many as they used to have. They are beginning to use motors to pump water for irrigation.

Our first stop was Beyt Sobek and the ruins of the ancient town that was along the road between Cairo and Fayum. Not much to see here as we wandered amongst the rocks. Then we went to see the waterwheels, which disappointingly were two wheels behind a wrought iron fence (not like the pictures we'd seen). We went to lunch at a restaurant on the lake and then on to Meidum (best part of the trip). We would have liked to have spent more time on seeing some better examples of the nearly 200 wheels and understanding their function. Meidum, the first attempt at the step pyramid, was very interesting...especially since the next day we were going on to Daschur.
