With more than 60 million people, ancient history and world-famous landmarks, Egypt remains a land of excitement and mystery. Now you can explore the politics of this unique nation at the Egyptian Presidency Homepage. Walk through the desert to http://www. presidency.gov.eg/ and discover the workings of this important office. You'll meet President Hosni Mubarak and sit in on Egypt's international conferences. If spending time in the capital city of Cairo sounds like fun, you'll love taking a virtual tour of the Abdeen Palace. This site is full of Egyptian fun facts, maps and news. It's time to mingle with world leaders on the Nile River. His Excellency awaits your arrival!

For those who love to fly through the past comes the U. S. Air Force Museum Homepage. Located in Dayton, Ohio, the museum has an endless number of artifacts and exhibits, and this Web site is no different. From the first all-wing airplane to the Boeing XB-39 "Spirit of Lincoln," here's your chance to sit in the cockpit of every plane imaginable. Navigate out to http://www.wpafb.af.mil/museum/ and tour the museum's galleries of hundreds of planes. You'll be able to cruise over Asia during the Korean conflict, lounge in presidential aircraft, and jetset with the stars on a space flight. Suffering from jet lag already? For those who'd rather stay grounded, there are exhibits on weapons, equipment, plane engines and the Air Force's early years. The Air Force Museum is educational and exciting. Up and away!
