We began our day in Egypt with with prayers and got in our coach and proceeded to the ionic place that finds itself on the bucket list for many world travelers, “the Pyramids of Giza, the Great Sphinx, which is the biggest draws in all of Egypt.”
The pyramids are on the edge of downtown Giza, a city on the east bank of the Nile. After the security check we entered the complex. There are three big pyramids in line. I climbed the first few levels and touched the stones it was truly an experience. The Great Pyramid alone is made up of many individual stones. It was the tallest building on the planet, and it remained so until the construction of the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
We later proceeded to The Great Sphinx of Giza which is commonly refereed to as the Sphinx of Giza or just the Sphinx, limestone statue of a reclining sphinx, a mythical creature with the body of a lion and the head of a human. We did not manage stepping of the bus and clicking much pictures as we were to visit the perfume factory and had to proceed to the airport to board a flight.
A friendly advise when you visit the Pyramid kindly be vigilant and extra careful as the place is very crowded and you would find many hawkers and touts. Our guide Mr. Mohammed and Mr. Noor were kind enough to be around to keep us away from all.
The perfume factory was located a couple of minutes away from the Great pyramid. It has a wide range of perfumes many of which had medicinal value and I could not stop myself from buying some for myself.
We did not realize how quick the time passed by and it was soon time for us to leave and proceed to the airport thus ended my and check-marked one placed from my bucket list.
