After haggling our taxi driver a reasonable price to take us to the Pyramids . This is a pastime in Eygpt!
We set off at 8 am in order to avoid noon rush ( not that there was any ) .
Roads were full of traffic ranging from cars ,horses , goats , sheep and mini scooters .
Our driver tried his upmost to upsell a camel trail to horse buggy trip, keeping ones patience is going to be difficult , for me anyways .
Arrived at the gate, very quiet , only locals , during the visit we saw mostly tours arriving on buses from China and south East Asian countries , only a few expats apart from us .
Nothing can prepare you for the first impression of the sight of the Pyramids and the great Sphinx ,dating back from the time of Chephren,4500 years ago.
The Sphinx,created from a single piece of stone forming the the head of the pharaoh with the body of a lion .
Well worth the visit , well maintained once you get into the site . Access to all areas is very accessible , the only damper is annoyance with horse racing by the locals and offers of picture taking with Camel !
