When we hear the words “Pyramids” most people think about Egypt and Pharaohs and mysterious black magic. If you have ever been to the Egypts pyramids you know that they are immense tourist traps. But those big piles of rock in Egypt are actually copies of the origional pyramids here in Sudan. In Sudan the pyramids are smaller, and numerous interesting things. The main sites of pyramids are near Merowe in Northern Sudan. Though they are near a major town I was the only person out there for hours and I counted more animal prints than foot prints.
