Feb…Love Month: Meretites & Kahai

Today’s love story is the love story of Meretites & Kahai

Too often when we talk about Ancient Egypt, we think about the Pyramids, the great temples, the art, the architecture… but we often forgot that they were humans as we are today, they were living a full life, a life full of joy, misery, happiness, struggle, love… So that’s why today’s love story is from Ancient Egypt

Meretites kahai-Ms. Effy Alexakis

Meretites was a priestess and Kahai was a singer in the Royal Palace. This scene is one of the most beautiful love scene was found in Sakkara, it shows an embrace between Meretites & Kahai. Their tomb in Sakkara probably dates to the time of King Niuserre (Old Kingdom – more than 4000 years ago). This scene is really unique for old kingdom tombs.

I'm an Egyptian woman who was charmed and fascinated by the beauty of my beautiful country Egypt and it's rich history, that's why I decided to enter the faculty of tourism and study everything about my amazing country. Later on, I decided to share my passion and love for Egypt with people from all over the world, that's why I decided to work as a tour guide. I also love to write. Writing to me is like holding a brush in my hand and start to paint the thoughts in my hands as words. So here I'm sharing with you my paintings "my words and thoughts" about what I see, feel, like and think about my country. Hope you enjoy your time reading the posts and that you Walk Like an Egyptian ;) :)
