100,000 visitors in 6 months. Not bad. I bet some little touristy places are wishing they could dig up a long-missing king on their property to bump up their numbers.

Sadly, I’m not one of those 100,000 visitors (yet). Not to worry, though. I’ve been stalking the archaeologists virtually.

They seem to have a nice sense of humor.
