The Perfect Place to Buy Antiques


The same dry air that is responsible for the preservation of mummies, also helps to preserve other objects in Egypt. The fact that the turn of the 20th century saw a huge building boom in the country also leads to there being some amazing antiques here. The wheels and the norag (the benchlike object) that was used for threshing grain are often bought to decorate gardens.

Maryann, this is such a good photo, with repeating circles and arches of different sizes and textures. It does look like a good place for antiques shopping.
