365/149: 18 July 2010: At the Pyramids

Our chosen holiday was the Grand Egyptian Adventure, run by Egypt Uncovered, which started  with a couple of days in Cairo to cover the Pyramids (well some of them) the Sphinx and the Cairo Museum with King Tut’s treasures. We’d been warned that the Pyramids are not really in the desert, but I was quite surprised by how much ‘in town’ they really were. Anyway, here we all are, several steps up the Great Pyramid of Cheops – it’s about 09:30 and the temperature is in the mid-thirties already.

And just for fun – it’s the cheesy tourist photo of the day! Ouch – mind that point.
