July 2014 Where The Heck Is It?


This is a view of the unfinished underground parking garage begun by the Pharaoh Djeserkare, but left unfinished at his death. Because Djeserkare had unwisely spent all of the money in the Royal treasury, and maxed out all of the Royal credit cards, his son and successor decided not to complete the project.

Today the empty galleries are used to store the mountains of tourist luggage misplaced annually in Egyptian airports
