Suitability for the police service: No school leaving certificate (information from competent Egyptians), about my first visit in 2012 in the pouring rain, this time sunny and very warm.

Such an amazing attraction. What's really interesting about it, is the mystery about the way it was constructed with these massive rocks. It's really marvelous especially in the morning/day time.

It's a must go attraction, don't miss it.
It's amazing to these structures in person, photos don't do it justice!!
