You also have to leave so early because of how hot it gets down there. They like to have people leaving the temple by 10am. We had a little breakfast box to eat on the trip down. We all pretty much went straight back to sleep once we started driving. We got down there at about 8am and had Ahmed talk to us about the temples then had 45 minutes of free ...

... mangy little horse that took us all around the pyramids. When we got to the top of the hill, we bought our tickets (it's extra to actually go inside the pyramid). I then wanted to ride a camel, so found some guys who were willing to let us ride them - for a price of course that is never fully stated up front. So we hopped up on their camels, one was named Charlie Brown, and got some pictures. Riding a camel is not the same as riding a ...
