-Alvinism, Toe-Knee, and Richard's first words upon arriving at the Pyramids.
Did you know: The second pyramid looks bigger but its actually not, its just built on higher land.
Thought of the day: Do you remember the days when you only had 35 pictures on your camera and on top of that you didn't know if the first and last one counted? Dang, now we got DSLRs and Point N Shoots galore where we can pretty much shoot our whole lives and then go back to find which money shot we want.
It makes you appreciate your old printed photos a lot more that you've kept for so long cuz they make you happy. I have shoe boxes full of photos that mean so much to me and I also have an external hard drive from the past like 3 years full of photos. It's time to clean out my closet.
Food for thought:
Hella bread, bacon, eggs, bacon and cheese for breakfast. Oh, and TK's patented fresh squeezed OJ every morning on trips. What a way to start the day!
-Alvinism of the Wildboyz
Yes we started many of our morning w/ some fresh squeezed OJ, its TK's staple.
We had this place called "Drinkies" that sould this bottle of vodka for $7. Time to go to the pyramids!!!
The second pyramid was once covered in limestone but was taken away by priests who used it to build other temples.
The fact that "Mohammad is the most common name in the world" didn't make sense to me till I got to Egypt. This is like the 4th Mohammad I met.
It was pretty sick to see how ancient people came up w/ these techniques.
We went back to the room to read up...or down. And rest before hitting the city.
This is fuul. It's one of there staples.
We had to find an Ahwa to smoke a hookah at cuz that's what they pretty much do all day.
TK didn't try all the local foods, but he try to work all the local jobs. Here he is serving, shai, which means tea. They drink it all day, everywhere, no matter what! More adventures to come. Hope you're living vicariouly through the pictures cuz it was awesome!
