Mummy Lady

This lovely lady is a 3,000 year old egyptian mummy on display at the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum in San Jose, California. This mummy is female, she was a priestess, and she was about 28 years old when she died, though cause of death is unknown. The Museum is built in an Egyptian style, and houses the largest collection of Egyptian Artifacts on the West coast of North America. This is one of four human mummies in their collection, which also includes a large number of animal mummies. The Museum is opened Wednesday through Sunday from 9am-5pm. It’s definitely an interesting museum, and worth a visit if you are in the area.

It was really beautiful, but we didn’t really see a massive amount of animal life; a large variety, but in smaller numbers than in some of the other parks. If you have a limited amount of time in Kenya I would recommend heading over to Masai Mara (my favorite park) it’s a bit more crowded, but there are a lot more animals there, and the larger number of people means more communication between the drivers, more communication between the drivers means that you get to see more. I’ll give more information about Kenya and our safari experience in the pictures that follow 🙂
