November 2007 - Cairo Egypt
Continuing on my Egyptian theme this week:
Still on Day 1 we next went to see the pyramids and Sphinx.
The Pyramids of Giza are over 4500 years old. They were built as the burial places for Khufu, Khfare, and Menkaure, three Pharaohs during the Old Kingdom.
Despite the efforts of many people to dismantle and plunder them, they have survived to this day. They are visible proof of the superb mathematical, construction and organisational skills of the ancient Egyptians. This was serious project planning!!!
They are the only remaining original Seven Wonders of the World.
Funny but I really enjoyed taking photos of the colourful camels, should have taken more!
