Thoughts:

I had a really good time flipping through Lost Cities, Ancient Tombs: 100 Discoveries That Changed the World. Each one of the many sections of this book is altogether short, 3-5 pages including pictures. The advantage of this format is that you can basically go to sections you’re interested in, and skip others. From the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, to Machu Picchu in Peru, and on to Jamestown in Virginia, Tel Dan in Israel, as well as many others. All fascinating, all worth more than one visit, and certainly all deserve to be in books such as this.

I discovered that I was in in 10-15 places the book mentions, not including the King Tut exhibit in Philadelphia. Being in a place gives one a different viewpoint, then just reading about it. Luckily, several others are within reach (long weekends) and I certainly intend to make the voyage – time, work, school, and family permitting.
I’m sure the stars will align at some point, even though it might take some time.

Besides enjoying the sections about places I’ve been to (and, indeed, wish I would have read them before going), there are several other wonderful places that I either always wanted to go to, or discovered in this book. The pyramids in Egypt, Petra in Jordan, as well as Mesa Verde in Colorado just to name a few.
