More from Egypt

By far the best part of Egypt was going to the Sahara in Giza to see the pyramids and the Sphinx... mostly because it was the one place where there was no clutter of tourists. We were actually able to move around and walk. And in doing so, I captured this camel taking a break from his workday of giving tourists rides for $5. This scene basically captures the spirit of Giza and the Sahara... a sunny, hot, and dry place with lots of sand and camels. And above all else, it was very fun and very beautiful.
