A young German tourist gazed at a view fit for a king — or, more properly, a pharaoh.
He also was given a brief view of an Egyptian jail after authorities nabbed him climbing down the Great Pyramid of Giza, but he says it was worth it.
Note: We don’t condone the defacing of monuments or otherwise breaking the law, but since this is the Photo Of The Day section of our website, we had to share the stunning the picture.

Andrej Ciesielski was on top of the world–the ancient world–after slipping past security and filming his climb to the top of the 4,500-year-old landmark (see video below). An experienced urban climber, he scaled the 455-feet to the top in eight minutes, listening to music all the way up.
After he captured some spectacular photos, and climbed back down, police took him to the station, questioned him briefly, and checked his camera to see what he’d been up to. They released him without punishment — but with a stern warning not to repeat the climb.
“I was told, [before the climb] that I did risk prison, although on balance I thought the photos would be worth it,” Ciesielski told The Telegraph.
The young tourist is already planning a trip to China.
