Those are some really neat photos. I like the solar boat. I sure would like to try riding a camel. It looks like lots of fun! I wonder if they are smelly?

Mom was fascinated with the solar boat. Was it to sail down the Nile? The photos are just wonderful. It looks like there was a Birdie on the Great Sphinx' head!

What awesome pictures! And Egypt is a giant litter box--no need for scoops either, with the camels leaving bigger messes than we gods n' goddesses!

I do not know why they would show photos of the Great Sphinx when they have the Great Sphynx all the time who are much more impressive.

Junior said...

Those are wonderful photos!

That sphinx has very long legs....are your legs that long?

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

I still don't get why they went all that way to see a Great Sphinx when they had a couple of great Sphynx at home!

Captain Jack and Sir Dante said...

Oh wow! Those are some wonderful pictures. Our Mommy has always wanted to visit Egypt so she is drooling all over the keyboard now. Yep, she is turning green with envy! Wonderful pictures!!

wow, Egypt? we love to hear how ancient Egyptian treated us, we are their God! and, anyone who killed/harm us will be death sentence! How cats ruled humans life at that ancient era.....

Very cool pictures! The camel is very cute. As much as I liked the pictures of your parents with the sphinx, I like pictures of them with sphynxes better. :)
