My first 'over land' trip outside Europe! I decided to take the train from Cairo to Aswan around 7:30 in the morning in order to arrive in Aswan 13 hours later. Awesome to see the Egyptian countryside pass by (its the longest train-trip possible). I wanted to get the over night train, but that one was full. Didn't regret seeing everything in day-light though! People washing their clothes in the Nile, all the little houses, people fishing, praying... mucho! :)

Mark had shown me the Lonely Planet which helped me out a lot, because I found the best hotel within 5 minutes. Was too tired to do much, but walked around for a bit and found an internet cafe to call Sigal for her birthday :) only problem was that all the typing was in Arab, but I think she got the message after they switched my keyboard to english ;)

lieve rut. we genieten enorm van je dagboek. super om het zo te volgen. zou je alle vier die stokoude ouders van je een beetje les kunnen geven wat we allemaal kunnen doen via travel pod (behalve donaties). hoe zie ik bv of je een filmpje hebt gemaakt en hoe krijgen we automatisch bericht van updates. was het gezellig met je neef in Cairo?
