I Came to Egypt to Pick the Sphinx's Nose

On Friday, my group went to a camel market [where they buy and sell camels - like an auction] before heading to the pyramids.


Later we went to Giza pyramids on the outskirts of Cairo where several are counted the largest structures ever built.

The Pyramid of Khufu at Giza is the largest Egyptian pyramid and is the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World still in existence.

As of 2008, there were 138 pyramids discovered in Egypt.

The pyramids were built around 700 years before Abraham visited Egypt.

Laughing as Anne gets on Moses


This way of riding assured I would not fall off of Moses

Naomi and Cambria riding their horses... Naomi was a bit nervous but it was Cambria's horse that tripped and fell throwing Cambria to the ground. No worries, Cambria did live.

Moments of fear while riding Moses

Legitimately terrified

It sprinkled for some of the time while we road the camels but really who is complaining?

My life is pretty great

Sugar was this character's name and he was a bit sleepy

Camels with the city as their backdrop

The pyramids and all their glory

Holy Moses

Moses: "Get over here Anne and give me a kiss!"
Anne: "Oh gosh Moses, here? Now?"

Moses apologizing to Leah for kicking her off at the beginning

We LOVE the pyramids

Am I REALLY here?
