Globetrotting Kids: The Pyramid Post

I went to the pyramids in Cairo, Egypt. There are three big pyramids called the Giza pyramids.

We rode camels and took pictures here.

We also touched the pyramids and climbed the pyramids.

We climbed the big pyramid. You could only go part way.

The biggest pyramid is 137 metres tall and the top is missing!

The pyramid stones were bigger than me!

Then I took a photo with the sphinx then I rode on a camel and we took a picture at the pyramids. It felt as usual like the other times we rode it.

At night there is a light show where they show the pyramids and the sphinx and they change colours with lights. We didn’t go to that.

I kissed the sphinx! Just kidding it was a camera trick.

When I left home I expected everything to be sand in Egypt and I thought that the pyramids would be a lot smaller.

This is the big pyramid at night

I realized that the pyramids were big and that there isn’t sand all over the place – there are roads and cars and trucks and stuff.

I like it here. It’s cool.

    Cameron – thanks for the great post!  My kids love to follow your journey but they want to know what kind of food you are eating in Egypt.

    You’re welcome.
    In Egypt I have been eating rice mixed with pasta and tomato sauce and spaghetti and beans and other stuff. It’s called Koshary. I haven’t had any pizza here yet but I had fish.
