Ancient Egypt & Cleopatra

You may or may not know that I’m mildly obsessed with Ancient Egypt (and I have the tattoos to prove it). Last year, I discovered the Oriental Institute on the University of Chicago campus in Hyde Park, and signed up for their e-newsletter. Which in the past year I’ve actually opened maybe twice. But only because I’ve also subscribed to 57 other newsletter and currently have 14,107 unread emails in my Gmail. Oops.

Anyways, I digress. I recently came across some awesome Ancient Egypt events:

  1. Course: The King is in: The Palaces of Ancient Egypt
    I could fake it until I make it as a legit University of Chicago student by taking this course a la carte, which covers the daily lives of Ancient Egyptian kings.
  2. Exhibit: Cleopatra: The Search for the Last Queen of Egypt
    The Milwaukee Public Museum apparently has tons of programming right now about Cleopatra and Ancient Egypt. After recently reading the Cleopatra biography, I’m curious to learn more. The Oriental Institute is also organizing a trip out there in January.

Next stop….Egypt! Well actually, next stop Chicago Opera to see Aida. Then, I seriously need to actually visit Egypt.
