Giza Pyramids and Sphinx

Today is a very exciting day because we are going to see the Pyramids. Mohammad, our taxi driver, is taking us there. It’s pretty amazing to see the Pyramids already from the highway.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Here we are; just have to find a parking spot next to these camels. And switch our mode of transport from car to horse.

This plateau was an entire cemetery complex for ancient Egypt’s royalty.

Male Visitor: “I’ve touched it!”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

These pyramids were built as tombs for the country’s pharaohs. The treasures and the mummified pharaohs inside have been taken to museums.

So all we find is darkness.

We’re alive! We’re like mummies coming out the tomb.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Camel Driver: “You can ride together on the camel’s back.”
Male Visitor: “What’s his name?”
Camel Driver: “Micheal. Michael Jackson.”
Male Visitor: “Michael Jackson?”
Camel Driver: “He’s famous.”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

And of course, you can’t leave without taking the cliché pyramid photos.

Male Visitor: “One, two, three — jump!”
Host: “One, two, three! Woo Hoo!”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Look, we’ve found the tail.

So the Sphinx is the biggest sculpture ever discovered in Egypt . . . and it’s actually not as big as I was expecting. I still really like it. But I feel really bad for him because he’s lost his nose.

Thanks for coming with me to Giza Pyramids and the Sphinx.
