Journey to Pyramid of Zoser ...






The Pyramid of Zoser or Step pyramid is an archeological remain in the Saqqara and was the first Egyptian pyramid. It was considered the earliest stone pyramid and was built by the architect --Imhotep.

What could be better than riding a donkey for a buck while posing in front of the Pyramid of Zoser :-)

Still here? 

Until next stop,

  3. I have always wanted to visit far off exotic places like to see the sphinx or pyramids of Egypt. How cool is this or what, you're doing these sorts of things. I'm green with envy..well not really. lol I'm too much of coward to climb on an airplane to visit these, so I'm thankful I can visit faraway place through the camera lens of others. Joining you via HIlary's FFFFF!

  7. Ooh, are you posting from Egypt? Looks awfully hot. I bet the whole area has a kind of resonance more modern places don't have. Being an absolute mad lunatic animal lover, I would've spent a little time giving the donkey some attention : )
