After getting out of the train, we took a taxi to get to the sightseeing areas. Yes, I was finally getting to see what the ancient pharaohs had left the world, in person. Excitement could not even describe, what I was feeling. It was a mixture of excitement, familiarity and peace. For some reason, deep down I knew this experience would change me.
Once at the entrance, there will be two lines to buy tickets. One side is for locals and the other is for tourists. Luckily, my friend bought tickets for me, so I got the local price. The funny thing about this, people were asking me for directions because I looked Egyptian.
Giza is not like what the movies show you. It’s actually right next to the city. As seen in the picture above! Still it was breathtakingly beautiful. There are a lot of people harassing you to buy something from them. They speak in every language known to man! Haha The best thing to do is just ignore them and say no.
When you look at the desert, gives you the feeling like the desert goes on forever. Never seen anything like it. Viewing the sahara desert from the plane is completely different than seeing it on the ground. It’s like the deserts in California times tens.
One thing that stood out to me was the treatment of animals. I felt bad at how they treated them. I couldn’t look at times.
As goofy as camels are, I learned to value them. This one person kept treating one horribly. He continued to hit the camel every time the animal slowdown. This experience made me not want to ride a camel. I didn’t want to encourage this industry. Hopefully by you reading this, you will think twice about having a camel ride.
Next week, we will go to the pyramids!!
