... to get over the remainder of our jet lag. This morning, our weather had slightly improved so we headed out to the great pyramids in Giza, which also lived up to their hype. Their sheer size and the number of stones that make up each one is incredible and leaves you in awe of how such as thing could have been built over 4000 years ago when their tools were primitive compared to the resources we have available today.

Rather than being a triangular shape like the great pyramids, this one had 6 stepped layers, giving its pyramid shape. It was pretty amazing. We wandered around the area through the palm trees in the super fine sand (which felt amazing), around the ruins and broken statues and ancient pillars and courtyards. It was very cool. And not so many ...
