Dag 71 Aswan na Luxor Egipte

Ons het gedink die Ethiopiese kinders is erg, maar die Egiptenare klop hulle by verre. Hulle los jou eenvoudig nie uit nie en groet met hul idee van humor ‘Welcome in Alaska’ terwyl dit 40 grade is. Ons besoek die tempel van Philae per bootjie wat op ‘n eiland is. Vertrek later na Luxor met die ‘green route’, al langs die Nyl met die klein dorpies en landerye. Daar is ‘n nuwe pad deur die woestyn aan die wesoewer wat die tyd halveer, maar dis gebou na die Arabiese lente revolusie en word net deur die militer en polisie gebruik.

We thought that the children in Ethiopia were persistent, but the children in Egypt beat them hands-down. They just do not leave you alone and constantly greet you with their attempt at humour: Welcome in Alaska – at 40C.

We visit the Temple of Philae by boat – the temple is on an island in the Nile. Later we leave for Luxor and we take the green route, next to the Nile with its small villages and crop fields.

A new road was built through the desert on the western bank of the Nile. This halved the usual travelling time.

The road was build after the Arab Spring Revolution, but it is only used by the military and the police.
