                           GIZA
          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.
