We all had that history class in school, learning about ancient civilizations with rudimentary to scientifically puzzling inventions that have stood the test of time and taught us some of their lessons, passed down through the ages. Go back in time to these pockets of early development and mystery all around the world:
Egypt: Land Of Gods And Pyramids
As soon as your plane starts descending onto Egyptian soil, you can clearly get a bird’s eye view of the claustrophobic city that blends into a sandy desert with the clear cut pyramids in all their glory. One of the Wonders Of The World is situated right here – the great pyramid of Giza. Mysterious stories of pharaohs and a thriving civilization that began from the waters of the Nile and flooded Africa and Asia a long time ago and disappeared just as mysteriously. Till today scientists, archaeologists and anthropologists alike ponder how such structures that have withstood the test of time, invasions, natural calamities and human defacement. Though the sites are populated constantly by talkative tourists and guides, you need but a moment to savor the moment gazing up at the monumental pyramids that remind us of ancient greatness that we couldn’t compete with even today.
