This is the text (if you need help).

Egypt opened two old pyramids. They are south of Cairo. They opened for the first time since 1965. Hundreds of people waited to see them. The Bent Pyramid is 4,600 years old. It was for King Sneferu. It is 101 meters high. It changed how people built pyramids. There is an 18-metre high pyramid next to it.

The pyramids are a World Heritage Site. Egypt hopes they will help tourism. Many people want to see Egypt's ancient sites. People can go through a tunnel deep inside the Bent Pyramid. They can see old treasure found inside. There are stone, clay and wooden coffins. Some of the coffins had mummies inside them.
