Africa Travel: Egypt

I’m a real big geek when it comes to lights, light shows, pyrotechnics, and the whole shebang. My face gets all twisted covered silly with excitement. That being said it’s no wonder that I would select and suggest a trip to the Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx in Egypt. This archeological site is one of the Seven Wonders of the World and one of the oldest tourist attractions known to man. By day you can explore the two sites with herds of shutter bugs, hoping to capture a something in their frame that could solve years long mysteries in how they were built and what they were used for as there are some who refuse to believe they were built by the ancient Egyptians. At night the same hot site from the daytime can be seen in a spectacular light show in cooler temperatures. Lonely Planet calls the show cheesy and pricey, but the Travel Channel places it in their list of  world’s best top 10 light shows. Either way it’s Egypt, the real deal and not some goofy Vegas attraction.
