Its been a year and a half since I was last in Egypt, and I had fallen asleep during my final leg of my trip to the ancient city. An Archaeological Excavation had called out to me and, while anxious to start digging. when I was jolted awake on touchdown and saw the dry heat radiating off the desert, it took me a moment to realize where I was, and remember why.

Eric, let's hope your time in Egypt is safe and successful. Although success is maybe not the best word. Searching for antiquities is a journey not a destination. Enjoy your time and keep us updated to what has changed if anything.

Eric, or shall I call you Indiana ... Alan Kenish told me you are back in Alexandria and that you 'found something'. Pray tell

I haven't looked at your blog in six months! So far Ijust read the most recent post. When will you give us an update? I'm in Pennsylvania. The other day I saw a display of several living floaing islands in Philadelphia. Each one is 6 to 8 feet across. I WILL send you some photos. I hope you're having a safe and productive trip! Stay well.
Hey David, Great to hear from you!

Enjoyed speaking with you today, will look forward to future updates here!
Hey Bryant, Thanks for your comment, I have fallen behind on posts lately, in part because scientific field work has kept me so busy. For example, Im writing this while taking a break from ferrying a team of archaeologists and their gear back and forth to an island thats closed to public access, is overgrown with forest, poison ivy and ticks, and has extreme tidal range. Its no excuse, I know.
