Alvinisms 698

"Oh my God. I can't believe we're here."

-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.

Being in here we didn't feel like we were in Egypt, Tee said it felt like he was in Indiana Jones.

Nice people, good grub, decent prices. I'd come back.

This is what our backyard looked like during the day.

The frontyard.

We had this place called "Drinkies" that sould this bottle of vodka for $7. Time to go to the pyramids!!!

You can never go wrong w/ pizza.

You can just see the devil horns coming out.

You gots to be more excited than that!

Rhadma was an awesome tour guide that let us cut the info and take more pictures. Thanks!

"Look mom! It's just like the picture!"

Insert quote of the day here.

Can you believe I'm sitting on the GREAT PYRAMID!!!

But Egypt can be a lonely place.

This is a scene from Aladdin.

Taking it in.

Here we are at the entrance of the Great Pyramid of King Khafre.

We're waiting for our camel.

I'm feeling the $7 vodka!

I still can't believe we were there.

Wildboyz a little tipsy.

Cameras & camels...who woulda thunk?

Hella concentration to get the right lens on.

The second pyramid was once covered in limestone but was taken away by priests who used it to build other temples.

I better see this on the website Ian!

The world was spinning.

TK and his camel guide, Couzi.

Yeah, its pretty GREAT.

The next Pharaoh.

Shooting away as usual. We have over 4,000 and I'm still trying to cut it down to this day.

This picture is rad.

Oh shit, I don't think the camel like paparazzi!

I made it!

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.

I'm pretty sure one of these guys was named Mohammad too. Ha!

We're having soooo much fun being buzzed, on a camel, in Egypt, at the pyramids!

This is another wallpaper status picture.
This picture pretty much says it all.

Tally ho!

I was so comfortable riding a camel I tried rode it Superman style.

Check out the ass.

I even flipped a bitch and rode it backward while it was running.

Look ma, no hands!

Thanks guys, and no we won't tell.

The Great Sphinx.

It's a lot smaller than you think. But its still awesome.

All the pictures and things culminate to this.

Now that's a broken nose.

Another view.

After we were taken on a demonstration to see how papyrus was made and painted on.

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.

After a nap we went meandering around the city and found these.

An awesome fruit market! Pretty colors everywhere!

The streets are alive.

Yeah, it was pretty amazing.

You don't see this in the middle of the street in downtown SD.

It's better to be friends w/ the man w/ the knife than his enemy.Oh what Egyptian food to pick.

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.

When in Rome...

Wait...Try again TK.



Of course Rich was pro status all ready.

Who remembers, BIOYA? Blow it out your ass!

Rich looks like a cartoon raging bull.

This was the BOSS of the street. He had the most money I've seen in Egypt.

Making friends.

Family business. Thanks for jamming to tunes and talking w/ us.

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!
