Ramesses moving tomorrow

The statue of Ramesses II will be moved tomorrow, on an Egyptian public holiday, from its over-polluted home and will be installed in its new Giza location on Friday: "Sayed Hamdan, a roving photographer, says he cannot imagine central Cairo without the statue of Ramses II. Hamdan is one of scores of locals who regret the relocation of the colossal structure later this month from the area where it has stood for more than 50 years. Arrangements are under way to move the statue from Cairo's main rail station to Egypt's Grand Museum near the Giza Pyramids on Friday."
