Egypt comes to Melbourne

At school, ancient history was my favourite subject.  I had the most amazing and inspirational teacher and a very multicultural class where we openly discussed religion, politics and the various civilisations.  Some of the most robust and challenging conversations were had in that class.  10 years ago now...

I had travelled a moderate amount over the past few years, yet unfortunately I missed out on seeing the Tutankhamun exhibit in the various cities that had the pleasure of hosting this wonderful exhibit.  King Tut was not the most significant pharaoh of the Egyptian civilisation, yet his tomb has been the source of so much information due to being untouched for so many thousands of years until it's discovery in 1922.  Melbourne has the priviledge of hosting some of the most significant artifacts found in King Tut's tomb.  Perhaps one of the last cities before it returns to Cairo museum.  If you are visiting Melbourne this winter, do yourself a favour and spend a couple of hours at Melbourne Museum.  You will not regret it.

I had the pleasure to be invited to the Gala opening and was one of the first people in Australia to see this exhibit.

And most importantly a huge thank you to my wonderful friend Mia for coming to my rescue and lending me this spectacular outfit.  I felt like an absolute princess.  You could not wipe the smile off my face the entire night.  Thank you Mia, adore you!!! X

    You really make it seem really easy with your presentation however I to find this matter to be actually something which I believe I might never understand.
    It sort of feels too complex and very huge for me.
    I'm taking a look ahead in your subsequent submit, I'll attempt
    to get the grasp of it!
