Cairo and the great pyramids of Giza

Our first stop in Egypt was Cairo and more specifically the pyramids and sphinx at Giza.

I think we fell right into a proper tourist trap of "you can go inside the great pyramid but be fast as only 200 people can do it a day...". I'm sure that cannot be right given how many people we saw, nevertheless it was a real highlight.

Here are a few photos which will hopefully give you a bit of feel for just how big they really are.
