Love the pics, hate how they were taken.
Wow, I think I can see the Illuminati from up here!
Egypt's lucky to have tourism of any sort these days.
I'd say the security guards won't be working at the Pyramids any longer.
Sweet! I'm a big fan of high places!
Yeah, those guys could've really messed up those pyramids.
They could have carved their names in the limestone up top, we don't know they didn't (nor anyone else over the centuries either). If they just let people go up their on their own that will eventually happen.
It's a pyramid scheme, I tell you!
Hmm. When I visited Cairo about 10 years ago, you could go into two of the three Giza pyramids and touch the base layer, but there was a strict 'no climbing' rule.
However, it soon became apparent that greasing palms with the right amount of silver would result in a blind eye being turned.
These things have stood for many thousands of years...I doubt a few scampering humans would have that much effect in all honesty. However, it does seem disrespectful somehow.
A few scampering humans won't, but if you're going to allow one person to go up, you have to allow everyone to go up, and that DOES do tremendous damage over time. All kinds of historical monuments around the world are in danger due to the effects of human activity. I'm not concerned about these individuals as much as I am about all the additional tourists who may now get it into their heads to do the same thing.
