Great show on Nat Geo
Tonight I watched the premier of a new two-part Nat Geo docuseries, "The Ultimate Treasure Countdown" about Ancient Egypt. Very interesting!!!
In Episode one, they showed something I had never seen before in print, online or TV. The # 6 treasure was Abu Simbel- what made it special is the host not only visited the exterior but was allowed to enter through a locked out-of-the-way door and visit the inside of what is called the "Ramses Dome." The entire mountain where the two Ramses II (Ramses the Great) temples were relocated in 1968 to save them from the rising waters of Lake Nasser, is an enormous hollow concrete dome!! This rivals Disney!!
