Narmer marched into the Nile delta and conquered Lower Egypt, establishing the first (I) dynasty. Cleopatra, another Queen of Egypt was Greek or Masedonian as I understand, and was married to a Black Pharaoh. What unites them is a love of their homeland, extended family ties, dignity, warmth and hospitality towards strangers. My informants on the point were the priests of Jupiter at Thebes. Add onions and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, until onions are softened. Around the same time as they were sailing to South America, the 13th century, these ancient peoples also sailed to China and back, carrying elephants as cargo ( 2 ).

From religion to architecture to fashion, its influence is epic and our fascination with this ancient civilization, so exotic and mysterious, remains strong even today.

Also popular is koshari, a mixture of rice, black lentils, and macaroni covered with tomato sauce and garnished with fried onions. We really need to sieze our history back from foreigners. On one of these journeys, the Kandace Amanirenas went along.
