Africa, Cairo

BLOWN AWAY BY THE MAJESTY PYRAMIDS OF GIZA.

I blown away by the majesty Pyramids of Giza.

First visit on the second day in Cairo, Egypt. It is a few minutes from the hotel. The Great Pyramids of Giza is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the pyramids complex of Giza. Located in the Giza plateau built in a twenty years during the reign of the king of Khufu (2589-2566 BC, also known as the Cheops) of the 4th Dynasty.

Different theories about Great Pyramid construction techniques. The acceptable construction assumption (which I can understand) is The Great Pyramids built by dragging and lifting large rocks into this place. Who dragged and moved them….no one knows?. Another thing that does not make sense is how that mammoth and heavy stones raised and placed in the  right places.

This is my first time in one of the African countries. I felt giddy with my first experience. I amazed that, finally, I was on African soil.
