You don't get much more Egyptian than this.

The three major pyramids at Giza.

 

The Great Pyramid was the tallest building on Earth for some 5000 years, until the Eiffel tower was built.

 

The outer casing only remains in a few spots. It would have been even more awe-inspiring when it was gleaming white.

My lonely planet book thrown in for a bit of scale.

 

 

Not  much to see inside the pyramids I'm afraid. No flash is allowed, hence the blurriness.

 

Ancient booby trap.

No wonder you can see the pyramids from so far away with the nothingness that surrounds them.

Cairo off in the distance.
