An 18 year old from Munich, Germany was deported from Egypt last week after illegally climbing to the top of the Great Pyramids of Giza.
Andrej Ciesielski has developed a bit of a reputation in recent years for scaling to some pretty scary heights and dangling over the edges of tall structures while taking pictures in the process. On this occasion, the teenager began scaling the Pyramids “when the police were not looking” and proceeded to climb them while listening to music and ignoring the police calls for him to come down.
The German photographer said that it took just 8 minutes to climb the 4,500 year old pyramids and from the video of his escapades, it looks like it must have been a pretty exhausting 8 minutes. Ciesielski was arrested when he returned to the bottom and questioned for one hour by police at the station before being released.
Apparently he is going to China next, although reluctant to give any clues as to why exactly.
