THE PYRAMIDS!!!






I can't believe I have been writing this blog for over a year now, and I have not done a post on the most famous thing about Cairo, Egypt: THE PYRAMIDS. I think probably most of the people of the world have heard about the "Pyramids of Egypt", and I could almost bet, that given the opportunity, just about everyone would love to have the privilege of visiting them some day. Well, I have been very blessed to have had that opportunity on many more than one occasion, and on every occasion, it is like I am seeing them for the first time.

When you are actually there, it is almost unbelievable. They are so luminous, yet breath-takingly stunning. It is so hard to imagine how the huge stones that make the pyramids were put in place. Each of these stones weigh approximately 2 tons each.

I'm not going to bore you with all of the specific details. If you are interested, there are plenty of websites you can go to to look up these details. I just wanted to post some of the awesome pictures we have taken of these awesome icons of Egyptian history.

  1. The first photo is unique, Jackleen. We're intending to ride from South Africa across East and North Africa to the UK on our motorcycle in 2012. We will travel through Egypt and get to see these beautiful icons. I would love to meet you as well! (((Hugs))) and blessings. Jo

  3. Jo, the 3 big pyramids were built for tombs for 3 of the Pharoahs. The 3 small ones you see were tombs for their wives. The first picture is actually not one I took myself, it is off of the internet, but I wanted to get one with the 3 little ones. It would be totally worth it for you all to come see them in 2012. If I'm still here, hope we can work something out. :o)
