Punjaubis. Splendid horses are to be seen everywhere the majority of them being stallions. During the Sunday afternoon I climbed the largest pyramid Cheops. The 451 ft. take some climbing but a fine view is obtained from the summit. In the centre of the blunt apex is a flag-pole several feet high. It is said that the top layers of stone once reached the height of the pole but Napoleon knocked them off. Coffee & tea can obtained on the summit. An arab offered to descend Cheops & climb the second Pyramid in 8 mins. Some of the fellows have seen him do it.
