The start of the 3-day holiday weekend is upon us. For those of us up north Memorial Weekend symbolizes the start of summer, and for others it’s a great excuse to go to the beach. If you’re too busy for travel because of school or other obligations, then take a break from classes and take a trip to see the pyramids in Giza.
Giza 3D is a pretty phenomenal site that will take you on a virtual tour of the Great Pyramid in Cairo, Egypt. Speaking from personal experience, it’s the closest you’ll get without actually visiting.
I visited Egypt a few years ago and had the privledge of walking through the Great Pyramid. It’s the next best thing from hopping on a plane and seeing the camels and pyramids in person. The tour was created by Dassault Stemes, Harvard University professor Peter Manuelian, and the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA).
So, if you’re unable to drive out to the beach, have a picnic in front of your computer instead and tour one of the ‘Seven Wonders of the World’ with just a few keystrokes and a click of your mouse.
