Khafre pyramid, Giza, Egypt 2004,travel, photography,favorites
(Chephren pyramid) Personally, I prefer this pyramid over the Khufu one, although is a bit smaller (only 60cm or so). The white area on the top used to be part the smooth top layer, which covered the whole pyramid ones.

"Very big, very old" (Camel owner, 1999 - quote from the Lonely Planet) This one hasn't any top layer left.

The Sphinx owes it's name to the ancient Greeks, for who it resembled a mythical winged monster with a woman's head and lion's body, killing anyone who was unable to answer it's riddles... (Now a days that job it strictly reserved to the local camel owners and hasslers.)
