the pictures

although i had indiana jones in my head ;) when i was clicking with one hand and trying to keep myself still on the horse's back, i still did not click a lot of them [lest i come to ground, literally]. but here are some...

there are nine pyramids in giza, not 1 or 3, six are visible in the pic below:-

of the biggest three:

the righmost one was covered with limestone
the middle with albatross [marble], which explains the cap like covering on the top
the left one with granite


this is the left of the bigger 3; huge, although these tiny pics won't do any justice to their grandeur




the sphinx, face of a man, head of a woman, body of a tiger:-


this is the biggest pyramid of all, the middle one of the top most pic. maximize it and the tourists on camels and horses might give you an idea of the size of this beautiful perplexing mammoth:-




their grandeur seem to be all the more grand when you try to imagine how would they have been made, with their raw material not readily available and with such perfect geometrical shapes.

talking about shapes, another egyption creation comes to my mind, that girl - sheer hotness ... uff ...

and the cameras were not allowed in the egyptian museum.
