Second half of Day One in Egypt

After a lunch of rotisserie chicken some of the best lemonade I have ever had, we headed west of Cairo

The first pyramid in Egypt, the step or broken pyramid of Djoser, located in Saqqara, just west of Cairo
Memphis, one of the former capitals of Egypt, has some great statuary. This statue of Ramses II is just exquisite. They have built a building around it, as his legs are missing. Note the knees, arms

The alabaster Sphinx was also magnificent. This side has been eroded by wind and sand, but the other side is intact.
Another dinner at the hotel and then I slept all night long, after packing for our departure tomorrow.
