Day 11 of Egypt Trip: Giza pyramids. Last day in Egypt!

Last day in Cairo – Egypt before we caught the plane home. So we decided to revisit the Giza Pyramids. The best decision. A bit of more information about the Giza Pyramids. The three Giza Egyptian pyramids are known as KhufuKhafre and Menkaure. They are located on the Giza Plateau, outside of the modern city of El Giza, Egypt. Who are these guys, Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure? The three primary pyramids on the Giza plateau were built over the span of three generations by the rulers Khufu, his son Khafre, and his grandson Menkaure.
The flight home by the way was a very long and uneventuful one. We went on the Emirates plane, a Boeing 777 from Cairo to Dubai, then we changed flights from Dubai to Sydney in a mighty A380.
