The Egyptian government is plotting to prevent me from getting a good picture of the Sphinx. You see, when I was there last summer, my camera batteries died when I was at Giza, so I didn't get one then, and for some reason I never made it back down there despite its convenience. Now with this renovation, I figure it's due to be partly covered with scaffolding during my projected visit from Israel.

In all seriousness, though, I hope they're not fighting a losing battle, as Lonely Planet's Egypt guidebook indicates the Sphinx has some sort of rock decay that hasn't been fully explained or successfully treated.
