Photo of the day: Pyramids of Giza

2013-10-30 12:23
As the last remaining member of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, Egypt's famous Pyramids of Giza are undoubtedly a spectacular sight, along with their sleepy companion - the Sphinx.

In fact, it's often images of these mysterious gargantuan that young would-be travellers cut their teeth on, feeling the first awakenings of wanderlust. Today's photo of the day by Instagram user clarisssz captures something of the ancient magic.

However, as with many famous attractions, the site is often crowded and plagued by hawkers and petty criminals.
