Betchya can’t guess where I was in this picture?

Just kidding. Pretty much anyone can recognize the Pyramids of Giza in the background. They’re an amazing sight. Eygypt7Access to the interiors is limited (only a certain number of tickets per day are sold) so I didn’t get inside – until later at the Steppe Pyramids of Saqqara – but I’m told they all smell the same inside (bat guano, anyone?) This photo, courtesy of friends who worked at the embassy then, was post 9/11 but pre-Iraq invasion so the atmosphere was one of relaxed curiosity. I was glad I was able to go, even though I did not step inside the Great Pyramid of Khufu.
