Speaking of things Egyptian...
I've been a hobbiest Egyptologist since I was 5 or 6, and one of the few regrets in my life was that I was unable to see King Tut's exhibit when it came to the GLAMA (Greater L.A. Metro Area) back in 1979. All that's about to change. National Geographic and the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities are hosting a new exhibition in the U.S. for 27 months beginning this past June.

Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of Pharoahs started June 15th on a very limited tour: Los Angeles, Fort Lauderdale, Chicago, and Philladelphia.  I'm hoping to get a bunch of like-minded folks together to see this one-of-a-kind exhibit when it arrives in Philly early 2007; Actually, I'm going regardless of anyone else but I know several friends have at least a passing interest and museums are much more fun to visit as a group. In fact, I'm on the list to grab tickets the instant they become available -- I just know this is going to be a sold-out venue.

Wheeee!

One warning, while I don't know with the ticket prices will be in Philly, but in LA, the weekend ticket price is $30 each, and then you go stand in a line to get in.... It is a bigger show than in 79, but still.....

I had the good fortune to be able to see the show in 1979,and it was well worth the long wait in the hot sun. I wish you the best of luck getting tickets and hope everything works out well:)

Notify when it does come in 2007, so I can plan visiting the US for the exhibit. I so enjoy artefacts and art history.
