The Great Pyramid is the main site in Giza Plateau, it is one of the 7 wonders of the Ancient world, and it is the only wonder still exist, the other 6 wonders disappeared one after the other. This building used to be the tallest and biggest building on earth for thousands of years till the twentieth century. The Great Pyramid was built with more than 2,300,000 blocks of limestone, and there are around 50 huge blocks from rose granite inside the so-called king chamber. We don’t know exactly how many blocks (casing stones) were required to build the external smoothed surfaces, there are some few blocks still attached to the pyramid from the north and the east side. It is believed that the Great Pyramid lost its casing stones because the area was used as a quarry for centuries starting from the Roman time in Egypt, but there are other opinions suggesting that the pyramid lost its casing stones because of natural disasters like earthquakes.

There was a time in my life when I couldn’t find a quality pillow, and strangely enough, it was my job to review pillows! I’d wander the aisles of Bed, Bath, & Beyond, plopping my face onto the tester pillows, trying to see which would work best for me. But, a New York trip, where I slept on the most incredible hotel pillows, changed my sleep game. I knew I couldn’t check out of the hotel without figuring out where to buy these pillows for myself. Not only do some down pillows advertise a certain fill and never meet it, they often don’t last very long either.2 months ago Travel + Leisure
