You are on a tour of the pyramids at Giza. It is one of the most popular spots in all of Egypt. The three Great Pyramids tower above you, a lasting testament to the power of the ancient kings, the Pharaohs. It is magnificent. It is astounding. It is... a perfect spot for a selfie.
This will be great on Instagram. #nofilters #walklikeanegyptian #isithotouthereorisitjustme
Hmm. Not much signal here. You wander away from the group, looking for those precious bars that will connect you to the world.
You don't realize how far you are going, or that you just passed a sign warning you of danger ahead. Who reads signs, anyway?
You finally find a spot with full bars and hit the post button. Your moment of triumph is interrupted by the sand giving way beneath your feet.
