  1. At point 1, i can see why those people act the way they do, the day that oil is not used so much their eyes would clear. Swiss Guard ke, are they only protecting the pope? Tears of a goddess, okay o. How did Sudan get more pyramids than Egypt?

  2. LMAO Diva you can complain!!! Sudan has lots of smaller pyramids. In Egypt the 3 greatest pyramids are what's really famous although there are little ones but not much. Plus, Sudan and Egypt were one before the Britons/French/Turks invaded and divided them! *deep breath* wow! that was history girls!
