Egypt here i come!

Egypt was kind of boring. It is the 38th largest country and the capital is Cairo. The population is 82,999,000 and the area is 1,062,450km. The language they speak is standard Arabic and the total GDP per capita is $2,161. The mediterranean sea is to the north and the Red sea is to the east. It is in South America next to Libya, Sudan and Saudi Arabia. The two main atractions that i went and saw is The pyramid of Giza and the great Sphinx. the pyramid of Giza was built in 2560 B.C. It is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza. It was the tallest man made structure for over 3,000 years and is made with more than 2.3 million limestone blocks. The Great sphinx is 65 feet high and 260 feet long and 20 feet wide. It has a body of a lion and a face of a man. The name was given by it's likeness to a great legend near the banks of the Nile.
