yes, i totally agree. I was devastated recently when i tried to visit the Temple of Re-Atum obelisk of Senuseret 1 at Matareya, once the most sacred place in Egypt. The enclosure was closed to visitors and the only way i could see anything was by peering through railings. For this i had to walk through the rubbish dump (complete with rotting dog and horse carcasses) which was on all three sides, only the enclosure railings holding it back. I was totally appalled at the fact this had been allowed to happen. I would love to work in the conservation field here, but how do you get a job?
