Egypt: December 1996

This was an Institute of Noetic Studies tour to Egypt with John Anthony West in December 1996. We also traveled with an Egyptian guide, an American guide living mostly in Egypt for some years, and an IONS staff member. Here's the itinerary for this "Magical Egypt with John Anthony West."

To set the stage, here's an ode to (one of) the tour guide(s): Mary Gilliland's poem for Barbara Hartford of the Institute of Noetic Studies. And here's a smaller selection of trip photos in an earlier format.
