  4. We hope all is going according to plan.

    • Hi Deb,

      Sorry I didn’t see this earlier but I didn’t realize about the comment area. I write a lot of the material but I don’t load it! Things are going well and it has been a good season. Weather much better this year than last and I was happy to escape the winter in New York. I land back in JFK on Wed about 6:30 so I should be home early evening I hope. How did Paul’s surgery go? Car still there?

      See you soon Diana

  5. Great to see that you’re all back!
    Might I ask one of you to get in touch with me, please?
    Have an invitation for you!

  6. this is a great site !

  7. This is indeed an interesting site. I have always been interested in Malqata. We are working at TT209 this season which is ending soon and staying at the ARCE apts and New Memnon hotel (highly recommended-basic but close to all). Good luck on your future excavations!
