... a massive stone sarcophagus, some weighing 65 tons or more! How they managed to transport them here is such an engineering feat!
But wait ... there's more craziness. All these tombs weren't for the pharaohs or even the key people of the palace ... they were for the sacred cows (Apis Bulls)!!! Yes, that's not auto-correct doing weird things in my blog or some Egyptian playing tricks on me, they actually made this place for their cows. That ...
... here many times. Besides learning about the pyramids, Andrew and I got a lesson in bartering 101. Many vendors were desperate to make a sale. We had to hold out for the best price.

We finally arrived at the hotel and were met by our tour guide who informed us that there was us and one other person on our whole tour... Not what we imagined. He also told us that he hadn't been working for four months because there were no tourists coming to Egypt anymore… Very sad. It was at this point that I ...
