Nile shipwreck discovery proves Herodotus right – after 2,469 years~theguardian.com
In the fifth century BC, the Greek historian Herodotus visited Egypt and wrote of unusual river boats on the Nile.
Twenty-three lines of his Historia, the ancient world’s first great narrative history, are devoted to the intricate description of the construction of a “baris”. For centuries, scholars have argued over his account because there was no archaeological evidence that such ships ever existed. Now there is. A “fabulously preserved” wreck in the waters around the sunken port city of Thonis-Heracleion has revealed just how accurate the historian was. “It wasn’t until we discovered this wreck that we realised Herodotus was right,” said Dr Damian Robinson, director of Oxford University’s centre for maritime archaeology, which is publishing the excavation’s findings. “What Herodotus described was what we were looking at.” In 450 BC Herodotus witnessed the construction of a baris. He noted how the builders “cut planks two cubits long [around 100cm] and arrange them like bricks”. He added: “On the strong and long tenons [pieces of wood] they insert two-cubit planks. When they have built their ship in this way, they stretch beams over them… They obturate the seams from within with papyrus. There is one rudder, passing through a hole in the keel. The mast is of acacia and the sails of papyrus...” Robinson said that previous scholars had “made some mistakes” in struggling to interpret the text without archaeological evidence. “It’s one of those enigmatic pieces.
Scholars have argued exactly what it means for as long as we’ve been thinking of boats in this scholarly way,” he said.

The Great Sphinx of Giza is a limestone statue of a reclining sphinx, a mythical creature with the body of a lion and the head of a human. Facing directly from West to East, it stands on the Giza Plateau on the west bank of the Nile in Giza, Egypt.
Here is what is conventionally believed about the Sphinx
The face of the Sphinx is generally believed to represent the Pharaoh Khafre. Cut from the bedrock, the original shape of the Sphinx has been restored with layers of blocks. It measures 73 metres (240 ft) long from paw to tail, 20.21 m (66.31 ft) high from the base to the top of the head and 19 metres (62 ft) wide at its rear haunches.
It is the oldest known monumental sculpture in Egypt and is commonly believed to have been built by ancient Egyptians of the Old Kingdom during the reign of the Pharaoh Khafre (c. 2558–2532 BC).

If you ever watch the news, read a newspaper or watch a movie, you would probably agree to say that the world we live in can look pretty scary.
For us, traveling the world has been such a massive eye opener. A lot of the things we thought that were one way, they were actually he opposite and vice versa. We have learnt that deep inside we are all the same: we all want love, we all want to be accepted the way we are.
Our Egypt trip has been amazing in the sense that we’ve been lucky to experience the warmth of a country that a lot of people are afraid of visiting.
Remember that there will always be bad people around, but the good news is that there are more GOOD PEOPLE than bad. And that’s gotta be something!
