A Thousand Miles Up the Nile:  A Journey Through Modern Ancient Egypt

Presenter:  Dr. Stephen R. Phillips

Saturday, January 24, 2015     2:00 pm
FREE program:  Seating Limited.

On January 25, 2011 a series of huge public protests began in Cairo’s historic Tahrir Square. In less than a week, the protests spread to cities throughout Egypt, growing quickly into a popular revolution that resulted in the resignation of Egypt’s President of over 30 years, Hosni Mubarak, on February 11. Only five weeks later, on March 24, I left Philadelphia for Egypt as the professional guide for a group of 13 intrepid friends, including two children. This photographic essay takes the audience along with us on our extraordinary 14-day journey through post-revolution Egypt, from Abu Simbel to Old Cairo, from the Temple of Philae to the Pyramids of Giza. We were among the very first tourists to return to Egypt following the revolution - this lecture takes you not only on a virtual tour, it reveals that not everything we read in newspapers, or see on TV, reflects the reality of a distant land.
