The Egyptians remain one of the most influential civilizations in history. Their culture and presence have been felt on the planet for over 7000 years. Like the Aztecs, the Eqyptians made great strides in mathematics, architecture, art, astronomy, and other sciences. They perfected principles of engineering that still baffle engineers today. One of the most fascinating characteristics of this civilization was their ability to communicate. Using a combination of symbology and alphanumeric characters, they devised a method for writing and expressing their thoughts on the walls of caves, tombs and on stone tablets…not to mention walking!
Slide your feet up the street
bend your back,
Shift your arm then you pull it back
Life is hard you know (oh whey oh)
So strike a pose on a Cadillac
“Walk Like An Eqyptian”
