Our evening yesterday started at 5 pm at Sanafir restaurant, where several members came out to have dinner with the speaker, Dr. William Cooney. Thanks to Sanafir for our very successful first collaboration, for a delicious meal and an overall great atmosphere. We were treated to several delicious tapas and mezze, a great preview for our coming Holiday dinner on December 8. Then, our entourage made their way to UBC for the lecture at 7.30 pm. We were joined by several more people to attend the lecture and were treated to an enlightening, yet provocative talk on the Meshwesh, as well as a two minute summary of the 3,000 year long history of ancient Egypt as a background.
We also have a Flickr account now, which you can access through:
We posted several pictures from the lecture on there.
Join us for our next event on December 8 for our first annual Holiday dinner.
