The pyramids were one of my main motivations to visit Egypt and they sure did not disappoint! However, I was shocked to discover just how close they are to Giza – the Cairo suburb where the pyramid complex is located. I mean, I knew the pyramids weren’t located in some idyllic faraway desert but certainly not this close to the city.
As I walked around the dusty streets of Giza I couldn’t help but grin every time I saw one of the pyramids from yet another unusual angle, like this one. It was a lot of fun! Can you imagine having one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World in your backyard? Bonkers.
