I didn't climb it either, but it was really tempting. But I was also ill at that time, so I had no energy left for climbing.

What would happen if someone climbed a pyramid in ancient Egypt, and it was during the New Kingdom?


I think at that time the pyramid was covered with some white stone so its surface was too smooth to be climbed... but I'm not sure.

Why were you ill, Neith, was it because the Egyptian food?

Yes, the famous Egyptian food, I hardly survived. And I did my best to drink only bottled water, I didn't drink from Nile. You know, it's said that when you want to come back, you should take a drink from Nile. But I bet that at such a case, you wouldn't even leave...

Yes, sick polluters, who want to taint the sacred waters of the gods. Mad

Actually, it doesn't look that dirty, it was beautifully blue when I was there. Plenty of kids were bathing there (I wonder whether there're crocodiles...).

I believe that all the crocodiles and Hippopotomi were run out in the 1950's when the Aswan High Dam went up, and now they don't like the habitat as much, since there's no annual flooding anymore.

I am happy that people were taking good care of the sacred Nile. Hapi would be very happy.
