Going through the Suez Canal

A travel blog entry by cjbishop


We supposedly entered the Suez Canal at 3 AM on Nov 20; we were not there to witness it! It is an all day affair to transit this man-made shipping canal that was HAND DUG in 1859-1869. A bit of information about the canal. It is 120 miles long.

Transitting the Suez Canal

A travel blog entry by mjt4662


... I can see the ships behind us in the convoy. Along the shore I can see various military encampments, and roads ending at the canal to feed a pontoon bridge that would be set up quickly if needed. There is also a swing railroad bridge and several ferry landings. Many places along the canal all I can see is desert.
