Saqqara, Egypt: November 26, 2008
We hired a driver to take us out side of Cairo we visited the Stepped pyramids- or formal name Pyramid of Djoser.
At the Stepped pyramids this man selling trinkets kept saying
“Want to see my snake?”
Dirty minded American was like WTF. No keep your snakes in your pants, then I thought about it again. He was wearing a turban and had a vase made out of raffia and I thought… Hey maybe he has a dancing cobra in there. Yes dancing cobra. Then I thought how shady he seemed and then freaked myself out yet again. He asked again. And I yell! “NO. NO! Nooooo I don’t want to see your snake.” I ran away and looked back he was laughing at me of course. Then he pointed at the detail of the wall that has a cornice being supported by snakes. MoFo! What a jerk.
This Pyramid wasn’t as suffocating at the Great Pyramids of Giza. Inside was spacious and we were actually alone again.
