Streetview an Interesting Spot in the World You May Never Visit

*I am currently working my way through my fourth semester of the Information and Learning Technologies master’s program at University of Colorado, Denver.  This is the twelfth post within a series of Daily Creates that I’ve been assigned to complete for a course titled Digital Storytelling.

Today’s Daily Create stated:  “Visit the home Google Street View to find a spot of interest which you have not and will most probably never visit in your life.”

I chose the Pyramid of Djoser, an archeological remain in the Saqqara necropolis, Egypt, northwest of the city of Memphis. It was built during the 27th century BC for the burial of Pharaoh Djoser by Imhotep, his vizier. It is the central feature of a vast mortuary complex in an enormous courtyard surrounded by ceremonial structures and decoration. (Source)

As beautiful and breathtaking as this place is, it’s simply not in my “top ten places to see before I die” list. I think it’s pretty amazing to be able to see it through Google Street View though!  Thanks Google for making such cool shhhtuff!
