November 26, 2017 - A few days ago we enjoyed a marvelous trip to Sakkara - Ancient Egypt's immense necropolis of the North - from the 2nd Dynasty onwards... Djoser's Step Pyramid is one of the great highlights of Egypt - the first stone structure ever built in the world around 2630 BCE. And its enclosure has buildings equally impressive - that strive to preserve the perishable world (logs, wood, reeds) in imperishable stone. The enclosure was brilliantly restored by French architect Jean Philippe Lauer - Join me for a walk inside!
