  2. Definitely. I think they're made of Lego and are much smaller than they look in the pictures.:biggrin:

    I would have thought more duplo to lego as the bricks are bigger.
  5. No. As I say, they're smaller than they look. It's so they can move them around Egypt and spread the tourist money around a bit.

    I did a Nile cruise 22 years ago. The pyramids at Giza were awesome.

    Every time I see the belt of Orion in the night sky I recall that trip, which was a once in a lifetime experience.

    The pyramids are at least 25 years old, I can confirm this because I visited Ciro and(Diamond)Giza when I was 13.

    Well I lived within a stones throw of the Giza Pyramids when working in Egypt. I have several small "pyramid rocks" (like moon rock, but closer to home !) for sale if you're interested ?
    The light show was well worth it but the chinese just outside the gates for my carryout was a let down. No Spare Ribs !! bummer....

    Why once in a lifetime? Did you go there in a hot air balloon piloted by Alfred Hitchcock and his faithful sidekick Bruce Lee, which means it can't be repeated?

    I'd quite like to see the pyramids, but I only want to go there on a day trip and take my own jam sandwiches and weak lemon drink. This is coz everyone I know who's been to Egypt got terrible trotskys and spent half their holiday alternating their arse between the toilet bowl and a bucket of iced water!

    I reckon they got the plans wrong and built the rooves first and then found that they were too heavy to jack up while they put the walls in.
