Pyramids of Giza, Egypt (April 5, 2008)

The Sphinx, also known as Abu al-Hol, looks out over the desert from beside the pyramids. The limestone statue has the head of a god with the body of a lion.
The Pyramids of Giza include the Great Pyramid of Khufu (completed in approximately 2600 BC), the Pyramid of Khafre and the Pyramid of MenkaureA man and his camel pose in front of the pyramids

Here I am happily perched on the Great Pyramid. I've wanted to see the pyramids since I was five years old!
