That famous cat really exists

Today we went to Giza to see the most famous pyramids and the Sphinx. The Pyramid of Cheops is in pretty good shape for 3510 years of wear and tear. The surface has been messed up by reuse of some of smooth outside blocks for other construction projects, natural erosion, and some vandalism but it is there. It seems even more colossal than I imagined.

And then we went to see the Sphinx. Also even bigger than I expected.



Here are a few of my many photos from various angles.
