DAY 2 // Cairo / Egyptian Museum The most fun I’ve had at a museum was at the War Museum on day 86 in Cambodia as we were able to touch and play with all the war machines and weapons, but the most fascinating and breathtaking was what I visited at the famed Egyptian Museum… The Egyptian Museum. It has been said many times before but the craftsmanship and architecture from the ancient Egyptian civilization from thousands and thousands of years ago was awe inspiring. Almost as much as when I toured Angkor Wat . The small but most impressive exhibition of King Tutankhamun alone is worth the ticket price. Although photography is forbidden inside the museum, this is profound enough for just your natural memory. While walking back from dinner, 2 locals tried to mug me. Intentionally leaving details, my carbon fiber knife saved me and… 1 of the perps must have been sent to the hospital later that day.
Salone del Gusto
It is also famous for the Slow Food event Salone del Gusto, that has been held here every 2 years since 1996. I was able to attend last month and it blew my mind! Torino is the location of the world’s first EATALY food store. Definitely a great town for foodies! More people watching. The first time I visited, I saw a man in a velvet cape walking his afghan hound. No lie. It was fantastic. More time breathing in the beauty and history and essence of Torino.
