Interview re Grand Egyptian Museum ( web page ( audio file - requires RealPlayer
A short interview with Yasser Mansour, the Chief Architect for the new museum. "A lone cement truck coughs up sand in a desert plateau near the Pyramids. It's close to 100 degrees. There's no shade, nothing to block the sun from baking the faces of construction workers. In a few weeks, they'll begin building the largest Archeological Museum in the world: The Grand Egyptian Museum."
