Like most kids, I was fascinated by the Egyptian pyramids and hieroglyphs and I always wanted to see it with my own eyes. In 2014 my dream was fulfilled, when I went to Egypt to make research for my book Street Messages.

I went briefly to Cairo and spent most of my time im Luxor in the temples. I was blown away by the elaborate architecture and walls covered with glyphs.
