The British Museum: "The tomb of King Djoser (2630-2611 BC) at Saqqara, known as the Step Pyramid, was the first Egyptian pyramid tomb, and the earliest stone building of its size in the world. It was also the first royal tomb to receive some form of decoration."
Tour Egypt: "Below ground, the Egyptians created an underground structure on a scale previously unknown, quarrying out more than 5.7 kilometers (about 3 1/2 miles) of shafts, tunnels, chambers, galleries and magazines. A central corridor and two parallel ones extend over 365 meters (1,198 feet), connecting 400 rooms. These and other subterranean features surround one of the most complicated tangles of tunnels and shafts the Egyptians ever created, below the pyramid itself."
I got information from the forum that the Draft problem should've been solved. "Thanks everyone; we've isolated this problem as a Draft-only issue, which we've documented here: knownissues Keep an eye on that Known Issues post for the latest updates, and in the meantime you can continue to upload photos from non-draft (blogger.com)."
I want to see if this works and how... and now picture uploading...here we go
I'm not the only one who has a problem uploading photos. But it seems impossible to get help... Blogger in Draft has changed the picture upload system and now I can't upload any pics from my computer - it says 'server error' - nothing wrong with my computer(s) or connection (tested several times)...
About one week to go and we fly to Casablanca... I've been a good girl. I've tried all the clothes on what I'm going to pack with us. And guess what - I found my old pair of jeans and they fit! Jippii!
all my excercise materials are soon packed...
I get excercise enough carrying things up and down...
Yes, we are back in Cairo but not for long. Some of you know already that we're moving to Casablanca, Morocco at end of this month. My husband's contract finishes here and new challenges are waiting in Morocco. Can't wait the new chapter in our life starting...in couple of weeks!!! :)
Here are the rest of the pics I took at the weekend. More pictures from Casa will come later :)

Au revoir! We've started to study French already.
Not yet in a class. We downloaded several lessons in our iPods
so we hear how to pronounce and get used to listen the language...
Oh, boy. A lot of work ahead but I like to learn new things!
Do you like languages?
I can communicate more or less with Swedish, Spanish, a few words of Arabic, English and of course Finnish.
What languages can you speak or communicate with ?
The Hassan II Mosque (Arabic: مسجد الحسن الثاني) is Casablanca's landmark.
The mosque is beautiful and HUGE!
Wikipedia: "The Hassan II Mosque (Arabic: مسجد الحسن الثاني), located in Casablanca is the largest mosque in Morocco and the third largest mosque in the world after the Masjid al-Haram (Grand Mosque) of Mecca and the Al-Masjid al-Nabawi (Prophet's Mosque) in Medina. Designed by the French architect Michel Pinseau and built by Bouygues. It stands on a promontory looking out to the Atlantic, which can be seen through a gigantic glass floor with room for 25,000 worshippers. A further 80,000 can be accommodated in the mosque's adjoining grounds for a total of 105,000 worshippers present at any given time at the Hassan II mosque.
Its minaret is the world's tallest at 210 m (689 ft)."
