The Great Pyramids of Giza

Before all the civil unrest that has taken over Egypt I was able to travel to the Pyramids of Giza in 2006.

Cairo remains one of the most chaotic cities that I have experienced with traffic that is congested with donkey carts, bicycles, buses, cars and pedestrians all sharing the roadways.

The pyramids are stunning to see in person. I even went into the center of one of the tombs, which requires crawling through very tight dark spaces.

It is not an activity for the claustrophobic person. – Giza

We were cautioned by our tour guide not to get on a camel near the pyramids for a photo because the owners had a habit of not letting you down without paying large sums of money.

We stayed firmly on the ground and were met by locals who were happy to pose for photos and tell us all about the history of the great structures.

As an engineer, it is amazing to see the structures up close and imagine all of the work and design that took place so many hundreds of years ago.

It is really beyond comprehension how it could be built and all of the human sacrifice that had to take place.
