Explore Egypt

Egypt is a country in the Middle East that most kids learn about in school – but imagine having the opportunity to actually go and visit this ancient country in person! From pyramids to sphinx to pharaohs, Egypt’s got all the elements for a totally rocking vacation!



Ancient Ruins

Of course the first thing most of us think of when we hear the word Egypt are towering pyramids and massive sphinx. Well, when you visit this Middle Eastern country, you get the chance to actually explore inside the pyramids, see real-live wrapped-up mummies and maybe even float down the world’s longest river - The Nile!



Perfect Places

Egypt’s got a variety of cities and places you can visit, including:

  • Cairo: A big, noisy city full of museum collections worth millions in gold, as well as bustling marketplaces where you can pick up some treasures of your own to bring back home with you!
  • Pyramids: No trip to Egypt is complete without an up-close-and-personal look at some of the pyramids. Check out Giza, complete with kid-zised ramps and interior galleries; Sakkara, where you can go into secret tombs and possibly even see real, live scarab beetles; and Dashur, where you can squeeze through narrow doorways into lavish, intricate rooms.
  • Luxor: Thousands and thousands of miles away from the Luxor hotel in Las Vegas this is Egypt’s own Valley Of The Kings, complete with sprawling temples, tons of tombs and ruins of ancient villages.

Awesome Activities

Besides all the ancient history (and, of course, the pyramid tours and exploration), Egypt’s got some awesome adventures and activities to offer, as well:

  • Boating On The Nile: The Nile is one of the longest rivers in the world, and has just about as much ancient history attached to it as Egypt itself!
  • Go Shopping: Come home from Egypt with your bags loaded with stone goodies – alabaster eggs, small pyramids, carved stone cats, miniature canopic jars and obelisks, scarabs galore. Gold and silver jewelry is fun, too, or get a T-shirt with your name embroidered in hieroglyphics.
  • Camel Safari: Ever been on a camel? The view is spectacular! Check out the sands of the Egyptian deserts from atop one of these humped creatures – just stay out of the way when they start spitting saliva!

No one is given a gun. A person has to acquire a permit, and then has to buy a gun for themselves.  Okay, yes, mental health is an obvious issue. But it needs to be for specific mental health problems. It can't be just because someone has a mental illness, because many mental illnesses won't effect the operation and use of a gun, or make it more likely for a person to hurt someone else with a gun. I support background checks which would include mental health history, but only if it's done right. Similarly, the guy who killed 49 people in Orlando was taken off the FBI watchlist. This tells me that there are flaws with the way that the watchlist is currently being used. Once that system is redone, then we can restrict those on it from buying firearms. But at its' current success rate? Not a chance.  And it's not about what's necessary...well to an extent it is, but hear me out. Weapons are used for self defense. No matter how many gun laws you have, criminals will still use firearms in their crimes. Citizens require at least an equal amount of protection that criminals use to break the law.  In other words, if you were to be the victim of gun violence, would you rather have with you a knife or a gun? Would you honestly bring a knife to a gun fight?  First of all, I agree with you. Mental health is definitely an issue! But together these issues can be addressed!!!! And as I said earlier, we can control our weapons. The government can create a harder way to get a gun or any weapon. Look at criminal records!!!! Even before getting a permit, or a license, CHECK THE RECORDS!!! This will help prevent these mass shootings.

The amendmant is there for a reason. Weapons are useful for protection. Protection is going to keep us alive. The human population, as a nation, and as a world! If we take away our weapons now we are all dead! We don't want that.  Now, killing 50 people in the Orlando shooting. That is just not right at all. It was not the gun's fault, it was the person. Same thing with the death of Christina Grimmie. Now, I personally believe that we should not take guns away, but we should find a harder process into buying a gun or some other weapon, and we should be trained properly! Look at people's criminal records, look at their other records. I don't care! As long as we still have protection, but less mass shootings! Omg, so true.
