Pyramid (Cheops?) at Cairo

{View of Cheops pyramid,
 the largest of the big three)

A view of Cheops' pyramid. The largest of the big three, allegedly spaced out following the stars in orion's belt. The tradition picture of stepped pyramid is wrong, the Eygptian ones where covered by smooth slabs which are almost completely woren away now, apart from a few scraps at the top.
The pyramids are surprisingly close to Cairo. "You'll be able to see a pyramid around the side of this building here" we strained looking for a small speck, to be completely shocked by a pyramid, as high as the block of flats, looming around.
