Exploring Egypt

On Sunday we took a Freedom Pass Trip to the British Museum. We were very lucky to get an invitation to the Community Preview of the new exhibition there called Egypt: Faith after the Pharaohs. It was a fascinating exploration of how Egypt has moved from being a country of many Gods, to one God, and how the many different faiths that have existed there over thousands of years have shaped the country, right up until today.

Outside the museum...before we got lost!

We travelled down by public bus and made our way there very smoothly, only to then get lost trying to find the lift in the museum! But we finally made it and we all had a very interesting afternoon with some beautiful and unusual exhibits that we were lucky to see before it opens to the public this week. Some people made a day of it and had some tea and cake in their cafe and looked around the rest of the museum together too.

Thanks to everyone and we look forward to going again.
