Morning musings

without comments

I am sitting on my balcony just finishing my breakfast and reading the news on my iBook. I just came across a classic quote :

“In 2002, Egyptians got 5.3 million tourists and we got 4.7 million,” says Marwan al-Marri, a junior executive at Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing. “They have the pyramids, and they do nothing with them. Can you imagine what we’d do with the pyramids?”

Can you imagine?
What would one do with them?

I can imagine an enormous glass geodesic dome encapsulating them and cutting them off from the desert, instantly transplanting the pyramids into a rain forest/shopping mall/casino complex/education centre. Hang on, has that already been done in Las Vegas?
