    ... had been shot off by Napoleons gunners, but nope, some of the books are wrong, the nose was broken off by a Muslim ages ago, by removing the nose, it is as bad an insult a Muslim can give anyone, a shame, to see it without this disfigurement would have been great

    There are 3 pyramids all by the same family and 6 smaller pyramids, and they would have contained the pharaohs daughter, mother and wife, they are pretty much destroyed now though

    ... an Egyptian leader. We were unable to see his body, since it is not kept in Cairo, but Ross, Chris, and I bought an extra pass to see the royal mummies of former Egyptian rulers. It was insane how much detail was preserved- nails, teeth, hair, eyelashes!!!! Unfortunately, photos were not allowed in the entire museum, but feel free to google it. It was pretty rad.

Not our second flight, nope a child tossing his cookies kept us awake. Even worse ...

    ... a real pyramid (by real, I mean pyramids with smooth slanted sides instead of steps). We also had the opportunity to explore the inside of another true pyramid at the same sight, and see our first Egyptian hieroglyphs. Our guide was not allowed to venture inside the pyramid with us, and without his watchful guidance, I had my first pen taken from me (apparently asking tourists for pens, rather than money, is a thing).
