The stories of the Pharaohs never cease to amaze me! They took everything with them as they died, believing that material things, food and animals would go to the afterlife with them! Even this boat!

This amazing ship looks like it was build a few years ago. It´s curves are so elegant. Farohs last jorney to the pyramids must have been a spectacle to watch.

Visiting the site of Gizeh, do not hesitate to stop. You will learn a lot about the surrounding of the Pyramids and the Sphinx while visiting the museum. It is better to have a guide to have all the explanations.
