All fame is not fleeting: St.Petersburg residents, from left, Joyce Baker, Leslie Curran and Tracy Ballard (wearing backpack) study the famous gold mask that covered the mummy of King Tutankhamun, in a display case in the Eygptian Museum, Cairo. About 2,000 relics recovered from Tut's tomb in the 1920s are on display in the museum. All three women traveled to Egypt on a tour organized by the Florida International Museum; Curran is St. Petersburg City Council chairwoman and Ballard is ticket manager for the museum.
