Day 4 – Giza – Christmas Eve – Revisiting the Giza Pyramids – Sellers – Selling: Souvenirs, Camel Rides, Horse Rides or a Ride on a Horse Drawn Cart…..

Walking the grounds of the Giza Complex without a guide means we were open game to the GAZILLION of sellers who were EVERYWHERE!!!

Expecting this, we thought up an avoidance strategy of only bringing the cost of the tickets to enter the complex with us. When approached by a local to sell us something – we would honestly say we had no money!!  We decided to bring extra money, as back up, but that was deeply hidden in our backpack!!!  A secret stash!!

When approached, Michael would pull the lining of his pockets out to prove we didn’t have money.  Sometimes this strategy worked, “No money, no honey!”, said one seller of souvenirs to Michael.  Other times, saying we didn’t have money didn’t work as we we’re followed with the seller continuing to offer!!!!
