Le Meridien Pyramids hotel, where we are staying is very nice! We're on the 5th (top) floor, called the Royal Floor, with our own express lift! From the pool you can see the top of 2 of the pyramids.
Went to the pyramids this morning. The guide said it was the busiest he'd ever seen it, as it was also a public holiday in Egypt today. Went down inside a crypt that was 4300 years old and creepily lit. Also saw the sphinx! Apparently there are 11 pyramids in Giza, 1100 in Egypt, not just the 3 main ones that tourists come to see, there are also many sphinxes. We were hi-jacked by one of the tourist trap people here into having our picture taken with a camel, it cost us $10, and we ignored everyone else who thrust things into our hands after that!
We've been lying by the pool this afternoon, its boiling hot, but luckily there is a breeze. We've just come in to find out we're a bit burnt! Off to see the pyramid and light show in a minute.
