    pyramid in Egypt or the pyramid in egypt?

    I'm confused with using "THE".

    here's the sentence.

    I went to Egypt for two weeks And I watched XXX there.

    what should XXX be?

    the pyramids or the Pyramid or The pyramids or The Pyramids

    Re: pyramid in Egypt or the pyramid in egypt?

    You don't "watch" buildings or structures. You see them or you look at them.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    My response to 'I watched the pyramids' would be 'Did you? What were they doing?'
