We submitted a description of our vacation to the Washington Post and they printed it the following week in their "Your Vacation in Lights" series. You can see the article on the Post's web site.

The strangest thing we saw during our trip was this group of musicians dressed in pharaonic attire playing before the Sound and Light show. The strange thing was that they were playing bagpipes. Mouse over the photo for detail.

Sound and Light show at the Pyramids. The show is popular, with a soundtrack providing a dramatization of ancient events while the pyramids are lit with colored lights and laser pictures, and the rock face in front of the audience shows slides and animations.
