THE GREAT LANDSCAPE
The Giza landscape changes with every step you take from the base of Khufu’s
(Cheops) pyramid, where a lonely column near the small pyramids built for
his wives, or the arid backlands with a majestic view over the smaller pyramids
of Menkaura and Khafra.
Either kneeling down, to admire the detail of ancient stone cut canals, or
standing to observe the perfectly cut stone forming structures of a temple
that will resist earthquakes, one is left with a deep admiration for such
skilled intelligent craftsmen.
On this landscape you can be also left hanging on a fragment of bent rusty
iron lost in this desert and wilderness reminding us of the futile efforts
of conservation we make knowing that it all eventually will turn to dust.
In the mean time let us cherish the wonders of this world where man has gone
beyond that of reason achieving greatness.
