Thanks to all of you who came to see the lecture last Friday night. It was cold, but lots of people came by to learn more about the Red Chapel of Hatshepsut. I found a couple of websites that cover this chapel, and a couple that discuss Hatshepsut herself. Take a look:

Also, I heard that a few people who attended the lecture were wondering about the best place to park. The lectures normally take place at the Rome Auditorium, 1619 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC. Several of us have discovered a parking garage that is open until 11pm and costs just five dollars. The garage is called “Colonial Parking,” and it is located at 1730 Rhode Island Avenue NW, Washington, DC. It’s just two blocks away — maybe two and a half — from the Rome Auditorium.

See you next time!

We sponsor tours to Egypt and organize occasional bus trips to museums that are featuring exhibitions on Egypt. We maintain close contact with the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, and the Egyptian Embassy in Washington, D.C., which frequently provides a speaking venue for our lecturers. Our lectures are otherwise coordinated with and held at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies. Our chapter has approximately 100 members and the average attendance at lectures is approximately 40 people. When held at the Egyptian Embassy, the number can exceed 100 attendees.
