Approaching the pyramids in the car.  Wow.

The view of the city from the pyramids (which are perched on a hill)

Our tickets to get in

The Great Pyramid - the most famous and largest of all the pyramids

Just to give you an idea of the sheer size of each block

A stunning view taken behind the pyramids - with Cairo in the background

One of my favourites from the trip - a pic of Courtenay with his finger in the air, pointing at nothing really.  I kept telling him "oh yeah, your fingers right.on.the.pinnacle!! Hold Still" when really he looked like a kooky tourist with his finger in the middle of no where

And so here we are in Egypt!  After a week and a bit in Morocco, we journeyed to Cairo where we spent 4 days at a 4 Star Resort.  

Cairo, if I'm honest, is a large, smelly, smoggy, over-populated city.  It's definitely one of those things that you have to do at least once in your life however.  Seeing the pyramids and the sphinx is surreal - these are ancient statues that we've seen countless times in marketing material, textbooks, on tv and in the movies - but to see them for yourself is completely different... and humbling.  They are enormous and breath-taking - an experience I definitely recommend!

More pics to follow this week!
