Hawass in Fort Lauderdale
Zahi Hawass on how much enthusiam has greeted the Tutankhamun exhibition in Fort Lauderdale: "I recently returned from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, after attending the opening of the Pharaoh's golden exhibition there. When I arrived, I could not believe how much Egyptomania had gripped this American city. People were wearing the golden mask of Tut on their T-shirts, and signs everywhere announced that the golden king had arrived. The exhibition display there is even better than it was in Los Angeles. There is more space, and the design is beautiful."
