Oh my gosh what an amazing day. I learned so much about not on the construction of the Pyramids but the family history of them as well. I never knew there are actually 9 and I learned why they are different sizes. I was never a history buff but I really got into it today. And the camel ride…. Well let’s just say I made a spectacle of myself getting on and getting off was even worse. But I loved riding through the dessert on being on one. It was just the getting off and on that sucked.
Local vibe. You see so many people using donkeys for transportation. They either ride them or hook them up to carts to carry heavy loads through the streets. A lot of the main work in this area, which is considered the country, is agriculture. There are big mansions near this area but they are scattered throughout Very old houses made out of mud may be a couple of blocks from a mansion and buildings stuck together so close with people mulling along the streets where it looks like these people may just be living in one room.
