Photo-Finish Friday --Meanwhile, Back at the Pyramids
Egypt's Pyramids are a busy place. Tourists everywhere. Police officers watching from camelback such as the gentleman in the foreground, and locals looking to make some quick cash off the guests.
One of the top scams going is to tell tourists they can sit on a camel for free.
Tourist gets on.
Camel stands up.
You want down?
We were warned about this so we were okay, but I suspect these men and their fair steeds make enough in a day to get by.
That aside, it is all part of the atmosphere.
