My Sphinx

The taxi driver lets me exit a nice walking distance form the Pyramid. There it is right in front of me. Along with other tourists I descent into the once important tomb. “Grave robbers looted this sight perhaps one thousand years ago”, the guide casually remarks. The burial chamber sadly is dank and empty. I am still intrigued. SphynxNext stop on my tour are the Sphinx. What strange looking statuary. I am not in a group so I have the privilege of roaming the area unescorted. It is not a long walk, but how romantic. Once again ancient history is near enough to touch. I close my eyes and dream of long, long ago. I wish I had lived in the time of the great Egyptian kings. Before I open my eyes a though races across my brain. “Maybe I did actually live back then.”
