Entry 7 - Ethiopia: Part 1
November 14, 2010 - Aswan, Egypt
We drove across the 200m stretch of no-man’s land between Kenya and Ethiopia just before noon on Wednesday the 20th of October. Our truck stopped right outside the Ethiopian immigration office and one of the members of our group collected the group’s passports so that the immigration officials could stamp us into the country. The entire group was advised by the tour company to arrange their Ethiopian visas before embarking on the trip, so we felt confident that checking into the country...

October 30, 2009 - Aswan, Egypt
 Currently sat beside the Nile as I write this in the lovely town of Aswan. What a contrast it is to Cairo here, so chilled and relaxed. Yesterday we arrived after travelling down from Cairo on the overnight train. Surprisingly it has to be the best overnight train that I have been on. Rach and I shared a two berth cabin, you got served food and it was really comfy. We arrived in Aswan abouty midday yesterday, the town is not too big and is set on the East coast of the Nile. The West bank of...

Felucca cruise
June 6, 2009 - Aswan, Egypt
Leaving Aswan, we took a cruise down the Nile in traditional style, aboard a felucca.

We climbed aboard from the dock right outside our hotel, meeting the crew, Ibrahim and Mohammad. We quickly learned that all self-respecting felucca captains are huge reggae fans, their appreciation for Bob Marley rivaled only by their love of soccer. Our captain was no...

June 4, 2009 - Aswan, Egypt
While we slept, the train headed south, following the route of the River Nile into Upper Egypt. We awoke to find ourselves passing through lush fertile fields, watching farmers tending to their crops among the palm trees alongside the river. Most of them were wearing traditional dress and using simple manual tools while their donkeys waited nearby. What was fascinating was how closely this resembled the scenes we had watched the day before at the Pharaonic Village. We realized that in this...

May 14, 2008 - Aswan, Egypt
From Cairo, we decided to travel the Nile Valley, starting in Aswan.  To do this, we took an overnight train from Cairo to Aswan, which was scheduled to leave at 11 pm and arrive the next morning at 11 or so.  It was going to be a slightly arduous trip in any case, but the train took three extra hours so we ended up being on it for 15 hours in total.  While we were sleeping, the AC either broke (which is what they told us) or they simply turned it off, because at some point I woke up...
