Statues of Rahotep and Nofret on display at the Cairo Museum.

"We went to the Cairo museum in downtown Cairo. We took the metro because we wouldn't know where to park if we were to drive there. So we joined the throngs of tourists in an effort to make some sense of all that is on display there"
Statue of Chephren, builder of the second largest pyramid at Giza.

"Without a guide we were lost as to what most things were because there is so little posted for people to read. We must have heard guides explaining things in at least six different languages but never
got close to one speaking English. We only had a handy little guide book that we have used a lot since being here"
