TUTANKHAMUN – IS OUR BREATH BURYING HIM AGAIN?

The BBC reported a few days ago that there is a possibility the Tomb of Tutankhamun will be closed – the reason is that the breath of the visitors to the tomb are damaging what the heat of the desert has protected for so long – see video  http://www.bbc.co.uk/go/em/fr/-/news/world-middle-east- 21089027 

Breath ‘disaster’ at King Tut tomb

 —-having an irresistible fascination for me, I went to visit Tutankhamun’s tomb every time I visited Egypt. In March of  2012, my friend Aiman, who is an Egyptologist, mentioned that they are thinking of closing the tomb. I hoped that he was wrong, and I still hope that they will find a way not to bury Tutankhamun again.

Besides seeing his mummy – he is the only pharaoh who is still in his tomb – this is part of what we would miss –

monkey - tutenkhamun

—– beautifully painted baboons, which were part of Ancient Egypt’s religious symbolism, decorate one of the walls in his tomb.

In Forbes Magazine I just read that Bill Gates with two other investors from the United States invested one billion dollars in ORASCOM, Egypt’s biggest construction company –  if Mr. Bill Gates has confidence in Egypt, maybe we should too and go and visit  Pharaoh Tutankhamun before it is too late!

More from Egypt soon
