A Quick Stop

The Colossus of Ramses The Alabaster Sphinx

Memphis was our second stop. It was a much smaller site than Saqqara and took only a little bit of time. I was kind of concerned that all sites would be like this, as this was our first day, but the Great Pyramids did prove to be a much larger place.

The site consisted of a large statue protected in a structure where you could walk around a mezzanine to see it. Outside there were other statues to look at. There were some souvenirs vendors, but we were waiting to shop later at the Khan el-Khalili.
