Giza Pyramids & Sphinx

Unfortunately cameras weren't allowed in the Egyptian Museum so no photos but definitely a lot of cool stuff - including a mummified crocodile! There was a LOT of cool stuff in the museum but it was quite intersting to hear our tour guide Hani keep mentioning how all these other artefacts were housed in the British Museum in London - I think a re-visit is in order!
Some of us went along to the Sound & Light Show at the Pyramids which was kinda cool but the tiredness from travelling meant that I did doze off at one point - so perhaps not too enthtralling!

The Pyramids of Giza! I couldn't help but do the cheese shot ;)


They were seriously magnificent. Standing at the base of them you can truly appreciate the sheer scale of it, and then when you think as to how old they are it's really kinda mind blowing...

Vasi standing on one of the stones - gives you some idea of scale eh?

Oh and another very cool thing happened at the pyramids - Johnny proposed to Bex! Awwwww! You can see them huggin to the left of the picture with Irish Jones video taping. (PS Irish Jones isn't his real name, but we already had a Craig in the group so what else to do but give him a new name!)

  • I also like how you've used vehicles for scale in your photos... True Engineer you are...
