The pyramids were big, something like 20 stories tall, but after the amount of hype on the pyramids it didn't live up to expectations.

We went inside one of the pyramids, and the contrast between how it looks from the inside and how it looks from the outside is incredible: on the inside is a long, narrow hallway, ending at a small room with a tomb. There is nothing on any of the walls except for the name of the european that discovered it 200 years ago.

The Sphinx is much smaller, I think 6 stories tall.
