Photos: Light & Sound Show, Giza, Egypt. Pyramids, Sphinx! A must see!

Light and Sound Show, Giza, Egypt

With just three days in Egypt, i did not have time to do everything i would have liked to. But i am incredibly glad that i did go to The Light and Sound Show at the Sphinx, in Giza. They have lights and lasers rigged and a sound system that tells the story of these three major pyramids (there's a fourth one visible too, in front of The Great Pyramid on the right) and the Sphinx in more detail and with more interesting story than my Government endorsed official tour guide. i literally learned more from the show than from the tour!

i was visiting in early June, 2012, between their first Presidential election and the resulting run-off, that comes up later this month. As you see, it is a great time to visit - there was very little tourists crowds anywhere!

Though this event is definitely a must-see, one of my favorite experiences of the 3-day trip, it was also exceptionally difficult to photograph clearly! They do the show in many languages in rotation, but it doesn't matter because they give you a little radio with headphones to listen to the presentation in the language of your choice.

i thought it was going to be really cheesy. i cannot stress how much it is not. It is remarkably well done, educational and interesting!

You can see green lasers creating some image right there on the The Great Pyramid of Cheops!

Here they reenact a conversation between an Egyptian Pharaoh and his wife.

Definitely check this out on any trip to Cairo. The entrance is at the site of the Sphinx, it cost just 100 Egyptian Pounds, which right now is something like 12euros or $14 or so.

i had several cars and drivers during my time there, and was by far the most polite, 
fluent, and on-top-of-things driver that i had!:-)
