Janice & I made our way around to the other side with the smaller “queens’ pyramids” effectively hiding from the constant predators that attack every tourist asking for tips, baksheesh or trying to sell worthless crap.

 

For a few moments, we were able to make these images in the blissful silence of the surrounding desert.
