After arriving in Egypt, I wanted to get a bit of rest. I always wonder how traveling makes me so tired – I mean I’m sitting around do nothing the whole time – but this trip was especially rough since I flew overnight and only grabbed about 45 minutes of sleep during my connection.
I had plans to meet up with my dad in Egypt but he was off exploring lesser known tombs so I had a moment to curl into bed completely neglecting the breakfast laid out for me. Not even the bright sunshine from our balcony window or the rattling wind from the sandstorm outside could keep me awake.
In the afternoon we headed across the street to the pyramids, braving the sandstorm that whipped swirls of dust into the air.
I’ve heard of different experiences at the pyramids so I’m wondering if the organization issues and lack of guards was due to the sandstorm. What do you think?

Kind of funny. Good post. I now have a feel for what it’s like and it doesn’t sound too impressive. Maybe the political situation also helped it to feel even more deserted and seemingly lawless.
