Upon arrival at our hotel in Giza, a friend and I immediately went exploring.  We walked up the hill toward the pyramids we could see the tops of and Wow!  What a sight!  We found someone who could lead us out through the gate.  Yes, it’s highly regulated yet anything can be negotiated with a bit cash.  We were both extremely excited and in awe of the grandeur of what we saw.  This is one of the first unobstructed views we had.

This icon, the Sphinx, is so huge, so ominous.  It just sits there, regally, gazing out over the desert; a sentry for the pyramids, on guard for invading marauders who would rather destroy what was sacred.  Or, at least, so I imagine.  Actually, it was quite incredible to be there from before sunrise, without hordes of tourists.  Just our little group of 25, alone amongst these seemingly alive “beings” on the Giza plateau.  Whether quietly singing or meditating or imagining, we were all in awe, blessed to be thrust into ancient times and tingling mystery.

We all got up early one morning and through the influence of our guides were able to get into the area of the Giza pyramids and sphinx at sunrise before any other people were allowed to get in.  It was incredible being there at that time of day without the masses of other people milling around.  After hanging out inside the sphinx, we were taken to a not-so-much visited place where we could practice our movement meditation in perfect view of the pyramids and rising sun.  It was a special morning as the sun seemingly split the Khafre pyramid, energizing the whole complex in response to our movements.
