Dr. Hawass tells of his having been presented with two awards - an honorary doctorate and an award of recognition - in Thailand on June 16; his first meeting with Princess Maha and Thailand's Ambassador to Egypt Noppadon Theppitak and how they've become close friends; the events and feelings during the ceremony; and speeches giving including his own, where he expresses gratitude to all involved and announces future archaeological plans and projects.

Accompanying Hawass' blog post are beautiful photos captured from the event, provided by Garry Shaw.
