Walk like an Egyptian

August 24, 2015

Cairo’s Egyptian Museum is as chaotic, dusty and beautiful as the city it’s built in. With it’s dark, stuffy corridors (there’s no air conditioning) and cavernous rooms stuffed full of ancient coins, papyrus scrolls, antique scarab amulets, coffins, masks and votive statues, it’s an utterly unusual museum experience in that it feels so real and uncurated. It’s like someone’s given you the key to Egypt’s underbelly, opening doors to Pharaonic treasures like you’ve never seen. One day, I’d like to go back to Cairo, spend hours in the museum, and then sail the Nile dressed like Mia Farrow in Poirot.
