I am always amused by pictures like that of the great pyramids. Your mind pictures them in the lonely desert somewhere but the city has really creeped up very close to them.

I thought I'd read somewhere that the Egyptian government/tourist board tries to suppress pictures like that because they want to promote the idea that the pyramids *are* still in the middle of empty desert. Could be bollocks.

Honestly given how open desert looking they try to keep the area just surrounding the pyramids I would not be shocked if that is true.  But the juxtaposition is neat too something that ancient surrounded by their bustling ancestors. I think the people who build the pyramids would be happy to see their descendents still thriving.
