These souvenir pyramids are quite common in Egypt. Cheap but very heavy to stuff in your suitcase (thank goodness for wheeled luggage). I have no idea if the heiroglyphics actually mean something, or the carvers just went for pretty images - personally I'm a big fan of the bee. There's a great bee on the leftside of the middle pyramid.
Vera, yes, I would recommend a trip to Egypt. A lot, and I do mean a LOT of tourists come to Egypt regularly with no problems. Hate to say it, far more have been killed in bus crashes and car accidents than by bombs. (Don't travel outside a major city at night and certainly never ever never rent a car and drive yourself.)
If you want to read up on the threat level you can read the U.S. State Dept's assessment here. I safely lived in Egypt for three years and no one I knew was ever in any bad situation, and believe me we were going to the pyramids, the Khan al Khalili market and especially Tentmaker Street (a destination every quilter in Egypt needs to get to), and all over. I was going to add more links, but I got tired... You get the picture.
Speaking of Tentmaker Applique, a friend sent me a link to pics of an exhibition of these works down in Australia. Lovely.
I've gotten more crumbs done. Just working on this a little at a time.
