Pyramid, Giza, Egypt

You looked at the photos of the pyramids and dreamed of going there?



Me too, but on the day I arrived in the sands of Giza, my heart dropped.

The pyramids were large., but not huge.

Those photographers, who presented them to you in the photo, as if hovering over the Egyptian desert, had to lie on their backs.

Well, Ok, they are just under 140 meters high, but it is equal to the least height, any first fell for its handwoven carpets, Although it is certainly worth the tremendous effort, considering, that the pyramids were built around 4600 years ago.

They are the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the World and were the tallest buildings for their first 3800 Years.

But roughly through 40 Minutes, quickly inspecting the Sphinx and riding a camel (warning: only pay the driver half the amount first, otherwise it will require you to double charge, to return to base), I was ready to return.

You do not at all desire to be able to spend more on them, and I would prefer better-seed pyramids in my old journals Neyshional Geographic.
