Day 4 – Giza – Christmas Eve – Revisiting the Giza Pyramids – Our Sunset Ride to See the Pyramids!!

To make a long story short, Frank who owns the horses from Day 1 of our Tour of the Giza Pyramids on horseback, promised us a sunset tour of the pyramids as part of our ticket price.  We made arrangements to meet Frank the next day after our visit to the Egyptian Museum.  Michael and I weren’t able to make the arranged time because we were stuck in traffic returning from the Egyptian Museum.

When we arrived for our Day 4 – Revisit to the Giza Pyramids, Frank saw us and kept his promise!!  So, we finished our Revisit of the Giza Pyramids with a Sunset Tour on horses!!!

Possibly one of my favourite parts of our time in Giza was this ride because at this time, all the locals come out to play on horseback – and ride their horses at full tilt!!!  Groups of young men and women in galloping packs ride into the desert!!!!!!  The fevered energy and the impressive level of skilled horsemanship as these hyped young teens ride these wild, powerful horses at FULL gallop is INDESCRIBABLE!!!!  These young teens are living in poverty, yet are SO rich, SO full of life when they are on riding their horses!!!!!!!!!!!
