G'day All,
Wow wow just to let you Know travelpod has selected one of my photo's to be featured in this program, what an honor considering they are just my intereptation of how i see the world thru the lens of my camera.
Alas we are on the final legs in egypt today we head to the masterpeice the Three pyramids of Giza. wow what an awesome sight it is huge bulding blocks and like all of us i thought it was only one layer of blocks but no it actually goes back sometime three deep into the pyramid, they are so huge and to think that the acients did not have the technology we have today to build them. Trevor was quaking in his scarf when it was mentioned that we will get to ride a camel today after we had seen the pyramids we went for a camel ride and trevor finally got to control the camel :) saying cush cush to it and showing off by riding backwards (typical canadian hey always trying to shiow the Aussie up).

We then headed off to see the Sphnyx and wow what a sight it was huge, over powering we went into the preperation chamber where they prepared the mummy before it assended into the pyramid all the while being watched over by the huge god. then it was back to a viewing point where we were to ride a camel from there to the third Pyramid this wasa thrilling ride as these ships of the desert walked over rocky ground like a life boat over a huge wave rolling with the terrain and gently landing you onto the other side in complete saftey My camel "jezzabel" was great till it thought it was in peak hour and tried to push the other camel out of the way so a few kind words whispered into its ear by trevor " move over camel or you will be eating dust ". we then departed for the step Pyramids these were the second pyramids built to try and stop the tomb raiders, again they were husge and powerful again the relegious rites were read to the gods and the kings. then finally back to the hotel where we rested before heading out to a fare well dinner on a dinner show boat on the nile.
Tomorrow we are off to Frankfurt and then Edinburgh

What a lovely pair :)
What a lovely pair you and Jezzabel make Stewart ... don't pick up her spitting habits though :) Seriously though, a great shadow portrait!!!

And hey, nice tan Trev but your neck must be a bit smelly with that scarf :)

Love,
