We went to the pyramids. It was so exciting seeing them with husbandsylv – every time I see the pyramids I am overcome by a sense of pride that my ancestors created these huge, beautiful structures.
husbandsylv even got in the spirit of things and wore a man-scarf.
It was sad that we could, so clearly, see the effects of the revolution at a site like the Pyramids. Every other time I’ve visited, it’s been bustling with people, we’ve hardly had room to walk. This time, unfortunately, there were more vendors than tourists, and that seemed to install in them a sense of desperation. We were torn because we wanted to support them but didn’t want to overload our luggage with tacky tourist things.
All in all, we had a great day out in the sun with some good friends, praising God for His creation, and for creating us in His image – as imaginative creators; and praying for the people of Egypt – for peace in the land, for a restoration of the economy and freedom for the people.
