Egypt: Cairo Museum

The delta region is rich land because of the soil deposits.

Cairo Museum

Photos taken in the old Cairo Museum, where labels were often misspelled, type-written on 3x5 index cards, dusty, dirty, not protected. Fortunately, the new Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM) built on the Giza Plateau with an ancient colossal statue of Ramses already standing in front, is to open in 2020. The antiquities are expected to be protected and beautifully displayed. The old Cairo Museum will become a showplace for papyrus art.
