Pyramid Scheme Part 1: End of an Era...

As of today, I am no longer a "Giza Pyramid Virgin"! I will never again be able to astonish people by saying that, although I have spent almost 8 seasons in Egypt, I have never visited the Pyramids. Saqqara, yes, two times. Giza, never! But I am doing it in style--staying at the Mena House with a view of the Pyramids from our balcony (Andrea Dudek is serving as witness to my "deflowering").

Up until today, I had taken pictures from the Ring Road, from the Fayoum Road, etc. like these I took this morning on our way from the airport:
But here I am on the balcony of our room:
And at the Sphinx:
And in the bar at the Mena House enjoying a well-deserved and refreshing "Aquarius" beverage after our pyramid trek:
And a last view from the Khan al Kalili restaurant tonight at dinner:
Andrea so eloquently described me today as "gob-smacked". That about sums it up! I will report in more detail later, but now I have to rest up for tomorrow's adventure--Saqqara and Dahshur.
