My heart was racing with excitement as we stepped out of our taxi. We were in Cairo, and we were finally going to see the Great Pyramids of Egypt! In my senior year of university, I remember sitting in my Ancient Egypt class, daydreaming of the day when I would actually visit the Great Pyramids for myself. At that moment, I promised myself that I would somehow figure out a way to get myself to these ancient marvels. And now, I was standing infront of them in awe. They were beautiful and it was a dream come true!
Visiting the Great Pyramids was a thrilling experience for me in many ways. For one, I was able to crawl inside the pyramids and eventually end up at the heart of the pyramid–the tomb. Having studied the Ancient Egyptian history for a whole year, I knew the value and historical importance of these wonders. Thus, the experience of visiting the pyramids was that much more meaningful to me.
It was also wonderful to have experienced one of the greatest wonders of the ancient world with my best friend, Jason. Moreover, this was also the first time, I had ever ridden a camel. What better place to ride a camel then in the desert, right next to the Great Pyramids? It was perfect!
