I changed the original title! It was originally announced that King Tut was coming to Bahrain *sigh* but something just didn't work out (we don't know what). On the positive side, other Pharonic treasures and some Tut's possessions will be on exhibit @ the Bahrain Museum starting April 11th.
The exhibition is the largest ancient Egyptian display to be held in an Arab or North African country outside of Egypt. I sure think it's worth seeing! Thank you Sh. Mai for your creativity and hard work!
P.S. Notwithstanding my absolute fascination w/Egyptian history & the exhibition, I have to mention that Bahrain is paying all costs, and all the proceeds are going to the Egyptian Antiquities Council.
