Interview with our very own prince, Khafra
Hello Prince Khafra, how are you today?
I am FANTASTIC!I am so happy with myself because eventually I will take the throne. Not that I don't love my dad, it is just that I am excited to be the next Pharaoh.
Do you have any new ideas for Egypt?
Yes, I think we should have a better trade system because we try to trade with our enemies, and then they usually try to start a war with us after we try to make a deal with them.
What most excites you about being next in line for Pharaoh?
I am most excited to be next in line for Pharaoh because then I get to control Egypt and make all the GREAT decisions for all of my people. I know how this place runs because my dad is the pharaoh and I live in the palace with him.
Have you thought of any good ideas for your tomb?
The only two things that I know is that I want a pyramid to remember me… duh because that is the latest burial style. I also came up with this idea that i will have a statue that has my face on it but I am not sure what I want it’s body to look like. I think it will protect me so I can go to the afterlife.
What is your favorite part about being the prince of Egypt?
Of course my favorite part of being the prince is that I can declare something and someone will get me whatever I said. Also, I will get to become the new PHARAOH OF EGYPT!!! I am so excited.

This is when Tutaukimad’s Food Market has big sale as well as other small stores do too. This is a great time to open a business and start selling your goods. The Pharaoh is holding a tryout because he needs a new chef. If you have been practicing at home definitely come. Slaves of the people are allowed to be in it for you so that means you don't have to cook, but you get the money! If you win...
