Ciaro is a busy city full of people Traffic and crowds. Our first visit was to the Pyramids. They were as impressive as I thought they would be. One of the surprises in the area of the pyramids was the Soalr Boat buried in the hot sands for centuries and unearthed almost intact with 5,000 year old wood and rope completely preserved. It was only ceremonial, meant to carry the Pharaoh to his after life and never saw water.

Other pyramids in the area were Dashur, the Step Pyramid, and the Bent Pyramid. We declined the opportunity to go into a pyramid because of the four foot high ceilings and dark, hot interior. We also experienced riding a camel here.
