Postcards from Egypt

    Maleeha, who heads our social media, spent the holidays in Egypt. She shared some photos and Instagrams from the trip:

    This was my first trip to Egypt, and I hope it won’t be my last – there’s just too much history and culture to take in. We weren’t allowed to photograph some of the most incredible things we saw, such as the ancient artifacts housed in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, or the remarkably intact hieroglyph-covered walls inside the tombs in the Valley of the Kings.
