This article I linked reads like a press release and the idea that the Pyramids might light up pink in the Middle East/North Africa tickled my funny bone if you think about their shape. It really sends the subliminal message home. *coughs*

Anyways....

The Race for The Cure finally reached The Great Pyramids of Egypt! :dance: Hip hip hooray! :dance:

Article on the Race for the Cure at the Pyramids today

Pyramid Webcam so you can try to catch something pink!

Current Local Time in Cairo Set by the World Clock

This is one 5K I'd like to run just like the Easter Island Marathon looks awesome. I wonder if this will be an annual thing every Oct 24th?

I was reading about how they are "pinking" up Egypt just the other day. I loved seeing the pics of women in their pink higabs. Even the U.S. Embassy in Cairo's website actually has a link to give you information about the Breast Cancer Foundation of Egypt

Anyhow, thanks for sharing this Olivia.

More on Egypt's Race For the Cure: Link

Illuminating the Great Pyramids of Giza pink will send a clear message to the world that breast cancer knows no boundaries, and that by working together, we can make great strides against this disease,” added Ambassador Brinker.

Alexandria, Egypt kicked off the week’s breast cancer awareness activities including a Regional Training Seminar on Breast Cancer Support Groups, tomorrow’s landmark Egypt Race for the Cure at the Giza Pyramids and the University of Florida’s 15th Annual Multidisciplinary Symposium on Breast Disease. Ambassador Brinker is leading a Komen mission delegation trip to Egypt where 40 U.S. delegates will experience first-hand the state of breast cancer in Egypt as well as in other countries in the region. Joining the U.S. delegation are nearly 30 Egyptian and regional breast cancer survivors and advocates representing ten countries in the Middle East.

Egypt is just one of several countries Komen is focusing on based upon the country’s need, relative political and economic stability, and the willingness of its high-ranking government officials and many non-governmental officials to work together in building capacity to address its high breast cancer mortality rates.

Oh gosh, yes! There's tons to see other than pyramids, actually the pyramids aren't even the best part. I've only been to Alex and Cairo as far as bigger cities go but there's Luxor, Sharm el Sheik, Aswan, Sinai, Marsa Matruh, etc. I prefer Alex to Cairo but Cairo obviously has more to see. Cairo has the pyramids in Giza, Egypt museum, military museum, Sala'adin's citadel, Khan el Khalili (awesome bazaar), various mosques that are gorgeous inside and out, various other monuments, etc. Alex has the other citadel of Qaitbey, abu al Abbas al Muris mosque (gorgeous!), Alexandria museum, various beaches on the Meditteranean (sp), the Corniche, Montaza Palace gardens, Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa, Graeco Roman museum, etc.

I saw that on the news last night as we were trying on my daughter's Cleopatra costume.

i was wondering...is there anything else good to see in Egypt besides the pyramids??

:yes: I've only been in Cairo (and Mahalla el Kubra where AbuS is from) when I've gone, and there are still a billion things I haven't seen even in that one city, not even counting the oodles of things to see elsewhere. It's great fun to explore and get lost in all the history. Just don't be suprised if you sneeze black for a month afterwards.

Oh def., I could probably spend a few days in the two cities I mentioned and still not see everything. I spent most of my time in Kafr Dawr but there's nothing really to see there, lol. Unless you like farm animals, dirt roads, various little shops, simple churches and mosques and people watching.

Ancient Alexandria

Alexandria is a beautiful city! Breathtaking to walk along the sea. The

seafood is out of this world!!

The new library is something that one cannot imagine until entering it.

It's a masterpiece! I spent many hours in the library and nothing can

compare to it's beauty.

There are MANY things to see in Egypt. Sticking to the Ancient/old Egypt besides the pyramids there is the Egyptian Museum in Cairo or Citadel of Salah El Din, which is where the famous Mohamed Ali Mosque. Not far from there is Al-Azhar park, which is absolutely beautiful and houses one of my favorite places to eat. There are also very famous mosques in Cairo such as, the Sayeda Zeinab Mosque which is famous (for those of us that are Muslims) because our prophets granddaughter is buried there. Also, the El-Hussein Mosque which is where our prophets grandson is. This mosque is also located right next to one of, if not the oldest Bazaar in Egypt. I think one of the worlds oldest mosque and islamic schools in Egypt too.

Luxor and Abu Simbel has great temples and other ruins. Many many rides up and down the Nile are available. In Alexandria, there is the ancient lighthouse (the first in the world), which you can go diving by. And Sinai, no need to explain the relevance of Mount Sinai. Also, on the red sea has Sharm el Sheik and Hurghada, both beautiful beach cities.

And if that is not enough (there is PLENTY more) there are many malls, amusement parks, and resturants galore!

<---Edit, Guess some of the girls, already talked about some of the places I mentioned above. Anyhow, my favorite is definitely my mama's city of Alex, although for the sake of my hubby I always tell him Cairo is my favoritest (not) :P

I still want to see Alex. I also want to see Petra in Jordan. I'm sure there is more to see in Jordan than that too. I also want to see Morocco but I am not sure what is there to see. Those are just the areas I'd like to see off the top of my head. I can think of a few others but feel there are greater risks for going into these areas for myself and at this point I am not willing to risk it.

yeah when i was in dust laden India I always had black guck inside my nose

in fact I got a real bad reaction to the dust and got an infection...i had a rash ALL OVER my body that itched like the worst poison ivy you could imagine...i was forced to stay indoors for nearly a month due to that sickness.

Thank God we found and allergist who was able to help me. It was an experience for sure.

omg LIVVIE!! There is far too much to see in Morocco. It is a beautiful country. It's that dirty there either.

Reminds me a bit of California....it has desert, it has ocean, it has valleys..

I have been to Rabat, Casablanca and Marrakech so far.

Everyone has their own attractions and monuments but Rabat by far, being the capital has the most

historical things....if you are looking for some fun in the sun..go farther north, which is not far at all, across from Spain and you will get all the warmth and blue water of the Mediterrean.

I can't tell you how much I have left to do just in that country, alone.

You can visit my facebook page. I have a ton of pictures.

Just waiting to hit the lottery :P
