The Pyramids and The Sphinx

The Great Pyramids of Giza are one of the original Seven Wonders of the World. One can see the structures in the horizon as you approach Giza, which is to the west of Cairo. The Pyramids are quite imposing and the way we got close to it, by horse carriage, was even better than if we had taken a cab all the way.

 See how big the rocks are?!

We went to see the Great Sphinx of Giza, which is a statue of a reclining lion with a human head. The angle from which you can see the Sphinx with the Pyramid in the background is very nice.

What a beautiful day it was - bright, with a blue sky!
