The Pyramids of Giza


When I first saw a picture of the pyramids, the first thing that caught my eye was the weird lion-man (Sphinx).  Ever since then, the Pyramids of Giza, like most people, was on my bucket list.  Before I describe anything else I need to say this, it is HOT in Egypt!  I know it may come as a surprise, but the desert is very very hot.  It didn’t help that I was there in August, the hottest month of the year.

I couldn’t contain my excitement, or my sweat glands, when I arrived at the Pyramids.  I was speed walking up the entrance way and snapping as many photos as I could.  All the vendors trying to sell postcards and pyramid replicas could not distract me from the awesome view of the Pyramids (even though they tried their hardest).  I spent a long time walking around the Pyramids of Khufu and Khafre.  Next to the Pyramid of Khufu I entered a tomb that had hieroglyphics and two stone burial boxes.  I felt like I was Indiana Jones as I climbed down a small tunnel-way to one of the burial boxes, unfortunately the box was empty (guess I’ll have to find another way to become rich).

After I looked around the Pyramids of Khufu and Khafre, I went to the Sphinx.  It was awesome to look at the sphinx and see the pyramids in the background.  I spent probably an hour examining the Sphinx.  This was because I was in disbelief that I was actually in Egypt looking at the Pyramids and the Sphinx.  Although the nose is broken, and there was deterioration, I was able to see the amazing workmanship of the enormous lion-man statue I had dreamed about for so long.

It was about 1 in the afternoon when I decided to walk along the desert to get a different perspective of the pyramids and of Egypt.  Even though I was dripping in sweat, I decided to take my time and enjoy the view of Cairo city and the Pyramids from a tall sand dune. No matter how much I stared at the scenery, I could not take it all in.  I was in awe that people could have built these enormous structures over 4,000 years ago (I’m still suspicious of alien assistance).

After all the walking, I finally made it to a lookout point where I could see all of the pyramids.  There were a ton of tourists from all around the world taking pictures.  I don’t know if I was delirious from the sun or if it was the cute blond girl taking pictures next to me, but I decided to have people take pictures of me doing breakdance poses.   It was a lot of fun!  Everyone around me was laughing and the cute girl took some pictures of me.  Unfortunately, she quickly left and I was forced to watch my one true love drive away on a big tourist bus.  After losing my love and spending all day at the pyramids I was ready to go back to my friend’s house and take a cold shower.
