Pinch Me Places: Giza

The latest installment in this series of "Pinch Me Places" on this blog is from my trip in 2010 with the lovely Robin to Egypt. It's Giza, the site of the pyramids

We rode camels. We actually ENTERED the #2 pyramid, all the way to the burial chamber (pretty taxing most of the way, going down a long ways bent in half, then up again bent in half before getting there...then back again!). Well, I did; because of her back, Robin had to turn back after just a few moments in the cramped entryway.

We also viewed the Sphinx and the ancient temple:

Breathtaking. Mind-boggling. Photos don't do it justice. Even having been there, I still find it hard to believe. It's definitely a "pinch me" place.
