The Pyramids are the only surviving structure of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world. When Christ was born, the pyramids were already 2500 years old. Since ancient times, the pyramids have enchanted and charmed their visitors. Every day when the sun sets on the bustling city of Cairo, the famous pyramids on the Giza plateau south of Cairo are absorbed in the darkness of the night.
The guardian of the pyramids (statue of the lion and the body of the human head) popularly known as The Sphinx recounts tales from Ancient Egypt in a spellbinding sound and light show. The colours, the play of light and the narration can take anyone back 5000 years ago when the Egyptian civilization thrived.
After being mesmerized by the show, we were treated to a sumptuous traditional egyptian dinner consisting of Eish Masri (Pita bread), Felafel, Ful Medames (Mashed fava beans) and Tahini (Sesame paste dip)
Rolling out of the restaurant after an overdose of delicious food, we were cheekily told by our guide Amir that the wake up time to catch our flight to Aswan was at 3am.
