Photo of the Day: #TBT dancing at the Pyramids

2014-04-03 17:36
There's a little tradition on Instagram called Throwback Thursday or #tbt, where users post pics of anything with an old fashioned, vintage or old-schooled tinge. 

While it started out as a more fashion-oriented trend, it's spilled over into other spheres of interest as well, including travel of course.  

Today's photo of the day is the quaintest, cutest example of vintage travel and was posted by @menahousehotel.

The Mena House Hotel in Cairo, to whom the Instagram account belongs, seems to have a whole archive of photographs dating back as far as the late 1800s and this one of ladies dancing in front of the pyramids just captured our attention.
