Be in Cairo and Giza not go to look at the pyramids? - It's like to be in Moscow and not to go to Red Square, we thought, and decided all the same one day to kill on this topic.
On the morning before we arrived first at the metro, then bus up to 2 lbs (10 rubles). To the place where the pyramids are already visible. The driver stopped where we have left and walk about 300 meters before the checkpoint.
We go along the road, admiring the rural setting, then wandered on what a farm where they grow plants for the next hotel, near the pyramids and their is enough.
seen here is of good old cows with white eyes - probably faded in the scorching sun ..
Well, that's what grown for hotels.
All tourist sites in Egypt similar to military units or prisons - are surrounded by solid fences with surveillance systems, the number of guards is not entered into any sensible framework.
Naturally at Giza - probably one of the most visited places - all that way.
A ticket to the territory, which we still had to buy after weak attempts to penetrate underground was worth 60 pounds inside the pyramid of Cheops -100 p!
At the entrance to the pyramid on duty here, these bros, arrange on-site also can not - by refusing to baksheesh (nemyslimo!)
Well, okay, went for a walk around the neighborhood.
camels and horses in stock!
here is the most mysterious area of solid basalt, it is unknown how exactly laid on a curved surface of the earth and polished from the top - to make this even in our time is very difficult to say.
She almost lost her form in spite of many centuries that have passed since the construction and frequent earthquakes.
Hence, a good visible Cairo.
Wandering around 200 meters from the Pyramids, I saw a security guard there, or helper, hurrying toward me.
Very useful near a narrow course under the ground and I crawled in there to avoid conversation.
In the basement were the statues that were carved directly into the wall - I was surprised that everything is open and not guarded.
He climbed into the dark and began to wait. He appeared in a couple of minutes and went on to explain that is engaged in digging, if I look?
Got up and immediately found Lech, with whom we went for half an hour ago, wow coincidence!
The area around the pyramids - a set of graves, the whole underground city poluzasypany time and sand, archaeologists tsdes still plow and plow! around a lot of holes, deep holes in the ground, sometimes covered with metal bars, sometimes open.
and our archaeologist took us to one of the tombs already dug.
Together we climb through the narrow passages, where in fact under a layer of dust scattered tostennym human bones and even saw several stone sarcophagi with lids.
Then he led us into another tomb, already ennobled, but so far, he said, is inaccessible to tourists.
Tried to forbid photography, but I made a couple of shots first, and then just took off on the video that the camera still and video shoots, he did not think and calm down. had to remove the truth from the stomach ...
At such moments always zhleesh that the profession is not a historian and archaeologist, not if know what we see now!
well only one thing on his mind - after all it was created many hundreds of years ago!
When got to the surface, thanked our guide, giving him a few pounds and a Russian metallic desyarik-like he was satisfied ..
Then he tells the story of Lehi in the life of the pharaohs.
but the owners of camels, and souvenir sellers not to history - around roam the thick wallets with dollars (to us it is unfortunately not the case:)
Police close to the relics are not allowed - and suddenly someone will climb to the top!
Tourism officials in the front waiting for prey.
processes that use it go! .. but he never stopped - they are so much!
Wellcome! - So you can voice these photos.
so imperceptibly day and flew tourists around the smaller, but we still can get to the distant pyramids can not.
yet reached, the protection of already-screaming Klose! Such as time ran out!
Do not listen to them and climb on the nearest apex.
Hence, more interesting view from the top!
And the desert is clearly visible, lying in the distance and Cairo.
That's just not uymetsya guard, raised such a panic, he called the police - had to go down, Lech filmed this video at the bottom, you will have to take away.
Then there were short-lived and disassembly of us were released on a promise to leave the territory as soon as possible.
Especially the police worried about what I'm after 5pm photograph - apparently this is strictly forbidden according to instructions.
He even once again caught up with us then, seeing from afar that we continue to shoot and screaming in all seriousness, that you can not do!
In the end, the third attempt, he stopped a passing police car and gave us his colleagues.
Here he comes to his pyramid with a sense of duty!
The machine we landed before reaching the gate about 300 meters, apparently for politseyskiz important to remove offenders from their territory is.
well, we walked a little more about the Sphinx, while another cop took us not to leave.
and this view of the pyramids from the roof cafe, located right at the exit.
decided to walk around these streets of Giza, the village is more than the city-around horses, camels, donkeys.
Lech sat down to play backgammon with the local, and I got acquainted with one of them - Hassan, asked for the roof of his house, where, I told kakon, see the pyramids.
When we returned, Lech finish the game for the second game - the first he won!
As a prize, brought us tea from a nearby cafe and then took pictures together.
Leh, where he was told he also wanted to see the pyramids at night - I had to climb back to Hassan on the roof.
By the way, as it turned out, Hasan is working security guard of the pyramids, but after talking with him, we realized that even he could not help us to penetrate into the illegal pyramid of Cheops - apparently it's holy ...
I thank him for at least the opportunity to remove the pyramid during light and music show today it was in Italian.
Here on the roof, the whole economy Hassan - chickens, turkeys and even then some animals in cages.
Where is the next growing Arabian horses, so the streets are full of horses.
back to the subway late at night, on my way to buy a lot of water and all drank and drank and drank - the day we did not have her, and now made up for the deficit. Friendly people does not pass - all tout a visit!
Dare to buy fresh juice from a pomegranate.
The seller, who had just passed us and the surrender of a minute is sleeping! That's without tension, they live here ...
A juice-then, as we later learned, and no juice at all, and sweet water, most likely from the tap, with pomegranate seeds.
well, nothing - like nothing happened, although we later gastronomic bomb still caught up in a dish called Ful, but more on that in another post.
