Thread Name: BS: The Great Sphinx
Subject: RE: BS: The Great Sphinx
I saw the pyramids and the Sphinx and the Egyptian Museum first, and then flew to Luxor to take the Nile cruise from Luxor to Aswan. I was struck by the enormity of the pyramids and Sphinx, but there wasn't much artistry or detail to them. The temples and tombs of Luxor and Aswan were far more impressive. If I had seen the pyriamids at the end of my trip, I would not have been so impressed. But now that image is fading from my mind, and I can't bring back the sensation of my first view of Giza.
