View from the Sahara
(click and drag in image, left or right, up or down)

This view of the Giza Plateau is taken from an escarpment that sits above a modern cemetery looking out on the ancient cemetery of the pharaohs. Before you lies the necropolis in all its glory, and behind you the vastness of the Sahara. See if you can zoom in and find the Sphinx.
