Conventional photographs of the Sphinx, such as the one featured in this month's issue of Smithsonian magazine, are taken looking west and give the impression that the figure and the three pyramids sit in a remote Egyptian desert. The reality is that urban development of Cairo and Giza have brought the cities to within easy walking distance, as one can see from a Google satellite view. This photo, taken from inside a nearby fast food location, emphasizes that reality in a dramatic fashion.

While it is surprising, it's not entirely shocking. After all, tourism is a big industry for countries with ancient ruins and they would be stupid to not do everything they could to make the tours as user friendly as possible. I certainly wouldn't want to see a Pizza Hut or McD's logo stamped on the sides of the pyramids or Sphinx, but within walking distance is reasonable.
I wonder if there are restaurants like that around the Acropolis and Stonehenge as well.
