Suburban Seventh Wonder

Giza, Egypt

From Giza

Okay, so they’re not that small, but while the pyramids are impressive, they’re not as enormous as myth (and Stargate!) presents them, and the encroaching suburban sprawl and smog of Giza does, it’s true, rather detract from the impact.

As I had done in Luxor, though, I tried to imagine what it must have been like to approach such structures from the perspective of a lowly ancient Egyptian. Unless you were involved in the actual building of these monuments, it must have been easy to believe that the pharoahs who had built them were sons of the gods!
