Wedding with Who?

Everyone in Europe loves ancient Egypt and gossip about mummy and great discoveries. However, Egyptians themselves know much more than we know in Europe, and they have even great movies talking about pharaohs cruelty which we do not publish so much in Europe. So today I want to remind you one such cruel but true tradition ..

Every year the Egyptians wanted to thank the river Nile for giving them a keep for a living. This is a very famous thing that the Egyptians was extremely dependent and grateful to the river Nile and their Gods for providing them a food and keeping them alive. And as a “thanks” to the river they chose the most beautiful girl from all Egypt once a year.

She had to be young and untouched – had to be a virgin. And just for her a huge feast was organized. She took a scented bath and dressed to the most luxurious and expensive dress. Adorned with a gold and beautiful jewels. Dancers, magicers, and jugglers came cross all the country just to have a fabulous feast and make our chosen girl happy. All the country was preparing her on a “wedding”

Wedding with WHO? Yes you suspect right – with our RIVER NILE. Handsome but cruel groom. Every girl who was chosen was incredibly proud and happy of this post. It was like a dream that just SHE WAS THE CHOSEN ONE. But after full day of enjoyment when the sunset started she had to go to the bank of river Nile accompanied by all Egypt. Egyptians started to drum up and our young beautiful girl had to jump to the Nile and drown herself.

This way the dept to the Nile was paid. And Egyptians rejoiced the future successful year full of food and great life.

In one old Egyptian movie they took a deep look on the chosen girl`s feeling. She stays on the bank of the Nile and she starts to look around her. She started to feel and understand what she has to do and what all the country expect and will not let her run away. And just now she started to regret of her decision. She try to find a support of eye view but all what she found was tension and eagerness from people to jump and finish this process…

Crazily luxurious FlyEgypt !

The first time when I was in Alexandria can you guess what took my attention? Well it was a library and a sea but from a modern buildings which are Along the coast my attention took a enormously huge building called San Stefano. Its located in the middle of Alexandria, directly in front of the sea and it’s the most modern and highest building here. When I entered inside I could not believe myself. In the ground floor of San Stefano we have a hotels, shop markets, cinema -exactly the same amazing and beautiful way as in Europe. On the upper floor are the most expensive flat ever. Only famous singers, actors, politics etc. are living there. It is impossible to enter for a “normal” person. Of course something luxurious like this carries kind of secrets with itself and will make you interested, specially here in Egypt where such a luxury is not on daily base.

The question was who built it? Who involved it? Or just who had such an idea to make it and was able to succeed in it? Continue reading
