So today I met with the Director of the Valley of the Kings, Queens, and Workers, stared out over the 418 known tombs of Deir el-Medinah, helped arrange an interview with the man who proved the pyramids were built by skilled laborers and not by slaves, sipped tea inside of a 3,000-year-old tomb and now I’m writing this looking out over the Nile at sunset. Are you kidding me?

This trip has been absolutely amazing. As we’ve been shooting these videos and stills, I can literally place each and every one inside this exhibit that we’re building, and I feel it growing stronger with every shot we take. We’re experiencing this magnificent country through the eyes of the people who are rediscovering its past. A lot of my friends and family seem to think that this is a vacation, and while we’ve certainly worked hard, no tourist’s visit could rival the way we are connecting with this place and these people. I’d write more but I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed. I suspect that feeling will be with me for a while.
