[Skip] Like an Egyptian

I'm not sure if the Ancient Egyptians skipped... but I really don't think I'll be able to help myself when I'm face to face with the sphinx.  Those of you who know me well may be aware that when I am really excited and/or blissful, I tend to sort of... skip-gallop rather than walking like a normal adult person. I've done this basically since forever. And I don't plan on ever stopping, because it's really fun.  Recently, I've been skipping quite a bit, not only because I've been wearing a lot of swishy skirts, but also because I'm leaving tomorrow (at 6:30 a.m.) for Egypt.

Yes, Egypt, as in where there are pyramids & mummies & such. We'll also be visiting the Luxor Temple, the Valley of the Kings, taking an over-night train (which I've always wanted to do), staying in a kibbutz, & hiking Mt. Sinai during our week-long adventure.

I'm having a bit of trouble wrapping my mind around all of the incredible experiences I'm having right now.  At the moment, all I can really think about (besides worrying if I have enough clean t-shirts & pepto) is this lyric from one of my favorite songs that's been running through my head, "I've still got a mountain to climb on my own..."

Maybe Sinai will be my mountain.

Stay tuned--I'll be posting pictures in about a week!
