We started out our tour of Africa by studying the country of Egypt. Honestly, it can be rather daunting planning a ‘quick’ tour because there is so much to do and cover. From pyramids, to mummies, to pharaohs, and the list goes on. Needless to say this isn’t an exhaustive list and there will be two more weeks to follow this post
