So I got as far as the Pyramids! Sorry I didn’t make more of an effort with the appearance….. 4 hours riding in 40 degrees with a jacket on, and the last 30 minutes was in traffic.
Just a catch up for the past few days. Firstly: the ferry, 4 males, 4 days, stuck in a ferry cabin without a window cooking food with camping stoves in the toilet:
…and little else to do:
…but sit and talk with the other overlanders about what we were going to do when we got to customs in Egypt. Surely, 4 days of talking about it didn’t help.
I wont bore you; it was boring.
Here’s some pictures more interesting:
So (back to the present) our 220km to Cairo took us 4 hours, the heat is/was unimaginable. I wont recommend it.
Anyhow, yet again GPS failed, and back to the concept I originally suggested: ask a cab driver to lead the way to a hotel, and it’ll cause little stress and worth every penny. Thankfully before I got to repeat myself a cabbie approached us and did the convincing for me. We’re currently in the Swiss Inn Nile Hotel (5 stars) about £12 each, with a roof top pool with views over Cairo right next to the Nile…. yes the Latitude map is accurate.
Tomorrow, we’re going to see if we can get our Ethiopia & Sudanese visas, let’s hope we get it done in one day!!
Thanks for reading!
