GOOD NEWS: COOLpix Puzzler: Egyptian Camel Ride

The Great Pyramid is the oldest and the largest of the three pyramids in Giza bordering what is now Cairo, Egypt in Africa.

(Cairo is one the world's largest cities and Giza, now, is a huge city itself and starting to encroach on the Necropolis (burial ground).)

The oldest remaining member of the Seven Wonders of the World, it is believed to have been constructed over a 20 year period concluding around 2560 BC.

Our photograph was taken in Giza from the back of a camel riding from the Great Pyramid down to the Great Sphinx.

The Great Sphinx of Giza is the largest, the most famous and definitely, the most photographed of the Egyptian temple guardians and is sited at the Giza Plateau on the west bank of the Nile River facing due east, a propitious direction.

Thanks to Wikipedia.

There are TEN differences, some subtle, some obvious in the photograph below.


1. The boys shirt is orange and there is a target on it;

2. His hanging shirt tail has been tucked in;

3. Mama's skirt has been lengthened;

4. His sister's stripes are reversed;

5. One of The camel's tassels is missing;

6. The Egyptian camel leader's robe is longer;

7. And his headscarf has a pattern on it.

8. And his shadow has moved;

9. And a rock at his feet has been moved;

10. The camel's collar has acquired some rubies.
