As the next point of our trip we visit Great Sphinx of Giza.
It represents a lying lion with a human head and was probably built in the 4th dynasty during the reign of Chephren around 2520 to 2494 BC. The Sphinx has been protruding from the sand of the Egyptian desert for more than four millennia, most of which was covered in sand to the head, which contributed to its preservation. Remnants of paint on the ear indicate that the figure was originally painted.
Now we drive to a cozy and nice restaurant where we have lunch.
We continue our journey strengthened and visit the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. The Egyptian Museum in Cairo is the world's largest museum of ancient Egyptian art.
