If you didn’t make World Trekkers: Egypt last Friday, we hate to break it to you, but you missed out.

World Trekkers: Egypt at HMNSThere were belly dancers, a whirling dervish and TWO congenial camels, named Gunther (above) and Teddy (not pictured). Even our own Director of Social Media and Assistant Director of Public Relations & Marketing tapped into their Arab roots and delighted our younger guests as Cleopatra and King Tut.
