... notes were flying everywhere. We then had a camel ride down near the best viewing spot for all 3 of the larges and best preserved pyramids. This was great fun and we had more photos taken by the cameleer. The sphinx next. It is much larger than we imagined - as I have said before everything is.

But aware of the fact that I haven’t had any English people around this week to rationalize me, I’ve been waiting to the last minute to say yes, whilst getting some second opinions on the idea of ...
