My lifes dream was to visit Egypt, and see the Pyramids, and the Sphinx....After the wild ride to Cairo, we rounded a corner, and there before me were the Pyramids of Giza! What a wonderous site! they are so grand, much bigger than you think! As we entered the area, we were only able to see the largest and first of the 3 pyramids....suddenly the 2nd pyramid appeared..I can't even begin to describe the sense of Awe you felt gazing upon structures that are 3000 years old! Pictures do not do them justice...Of course we had to climb up onto the pyramid to have pictures taken, and see the view below....the area was teaming with tourists, Egyptians, and camels!! There was even one egyptian family that spread a blanket, and had a picnic in the shade of the great pyramid! There were many people hawking souviners, and of course the camel rides.
Next we drove to the area of the Sphinx. We had to enter an area that we had to climb up to a viewing platform. You are not able to touch the Sphinx, but you are very close and again, you are awed by the size of this creature! It surely is an awesome experience to gaze upon this figure sculptured some 3000 years ago!
Me and 2 buddies!
