Silence While I Enjoy The Scenery





I stepped out of the tour bus and did not hear anything else. I wasn't even listening to Iman describe and educate us about the pyramids. My eyes appeared to have protruded out of their sockets. I just looked and looked.

So if you want to know more about the pyramids at Giza, our friendly wikipedia has this comprehensive page.

For a personal take on the Giza pyramids, fellow blogger Dennis of Nomadic Pinoy has this to say here.

This post also is my entry to this week's:

SKYWATCH #99: Egypt.

PHOTO HUNT #91: Triangle

PS. I just realized this also happens to my by 900th post. Yay!

  4. Wow, I want to go there! I've expressed a hundred times my desire to see the real pyramids. I would probably just be quiet, too, and speak to the pyramids through my head when I reach there. Beautiful shots!

    About your question, I think the Susa Valley is too "artistic" and precious for the TAV construction which surely would spoil the valley.
