Event location: 
Blue Bell

Dr. Steve is BACK! ("I Want My Mummy," CSI Egypt, X-Raying the Pharaohs) to talk about his adventures traveling to Egypt just five weeks after the end of the 2011 Revolution in Egypt.

This photographic essay takes the audience along with Dr. Steve and his group of 13, including two chilren, on an extraordinary14-day journey through post-revolution Egypt, from Abu Simbel to Old Cairo, from the Temple of Philae to the Pyramids of Giza. He and his group were among the very first tourists to return to Egypt following the revolution. This lecture takes you not only on a virtual tour, it reveals that not everything we read in newspapers, or see on TV, reflects the reality of a distant land.
