The Pyramids: buena vista

The wonder at seeing the Pyramids at Giza firsthand can be really be tainted by the swarms of tourists, and touts trying to sell you everything from perfume oils to “ancient” artifacts. But if you rent a horse and approach the Pyramids from farther out in the desert, you will be rewarded with this view. When Herodotus, the Greek historian, travelled to Egypt in 450 BC, I imagine him coming upon the Pyramids and seeing them just like this.
