    It is really GREAT and wanderful!!!!!
    In Giza Plateau, where Sphinx is located, is very, very hot. I don`t know, how the people in ancient Egypt could work there so hard.

    Ride a camel

    There is no shortage of opportunity to ride a camel near the pyramids. I think we paid LE160 for my husband and daughter for about half an hour. We probably overpaid but what the heck!

    No. It is not small like that. The highest is the oldest. Keops' pyramid or The Great Pyramid is about 146 meters high. On the picture is Koefren's one.

    The third one is the smallest. It belongs to Koefren's son Mikerinos. It is the only one which is open for tourists.

    I think that Pyramids are not so close to Cairo, but as we saw – they really are very close to capital of Egypt! :-)
    At first we saw Pyramids through the buss windows. Unforgettable sight!!!

    It was built 4500 years ago. It used to have an outer case of polished limestone, the case was removed about 600 years ago to build cities and mosques.
    It is about 137 meters high.
