This chapter begins with a description of the cathedral near the author's apartment in Cologne, which reminded her of the pyramids. Although erected thousands of years later, the cathedral, like the pyramids, is an amazing testament to the power of the faith. The cathedral and the Rhine, the museums, and the Philharmonic kept the author from becoming homesick. During her brief stay in Cologne, she had admired the educational programs for children the museums had developed to accompany their exhibition Nofret, the Beautiful. She then decided that she wanted to work in museum education programs, especially for children and the handicapped. From 1988 to 1991 the author worked on the study about an Egyptian children's museum, writing it first in Arabic, then in a German version.
