While in Egypt, we were enjoying the view of the pyramids when (what appeared to be) a school group wandered by on camels. Their destination was the Pyramids of Giza, and the students’ starting point was about 200 yards/meters behind me.
In Egypt, most everything with tourists is based on bartering. For example, if I wanted to ride a camel through the desert, I’d have to haggle with the camel’s owner for a lengthy period of time before we agreed upon a suitable price. I couldn’t image bartering for a camel ride for 30 kids.
