Photo(s) of the Week

Found and incredible collection online of color photos of Egypt from the 1920s. You can look at the rest here

Here is a photo of Tucker (my roommate), me and our landlord Wagim. Wagim is a Coptic Christian and you can just barely make out the small tattoo of a Coptic cross on his wrist. The tattoo on their right wrist is a common tradition among Copts. Here is a close-up of the tattoo. We were discussing the picking of a new Coptic pope which took place on Sunday. The highlight of the event is when a young boy is picked and brought to the front of the cathedral, blind-folded, and then chooses the name of the new pope out of a glass egg.

Alright, off to the pyramids to make next week’s video! Have a good weekend!
