Boot Out the Looters

 This is the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. Nine men managed to enter the museum on Saturday, January 29th, 2011, and break a few things belonging to King Tutankhamen of the 14th century B.C.  So sad.  I took this picture when I went there last year.  Pity we were not allowed to take our cameras inside the museum. I hope the present unrest in Egypt does not take away from this world all the priceless treasures in this building and other parts of the country.  I’d like to go back there again some day.  There was so much to see and such little time!!
Tourism is Egypt’s main industry; it’s ancient peoples are such an inspiration to all of us. I hope we can keep everything and everyone safe.
