... of us walk into the village of Abu Simbel to sit at a café with the local men and adopt their custom of drinking black tea and smoking the hookah (apple flavored tobacco with molasses) into the evening. During the trip we’ve made friends with a couple from the Czech Republic, and they join us tonight at both the sound and light show and the café.

Oh this is not happening. 20km, 30km, the large pelton meets up with me, keep pace for a bit and leave them at the 42km coke stop. I just want to make 80km to lunch truck. It's very hard to out ride dogs in one gear on a down hill, thankfully a few barks and squirt water at them they leave me alone, off into the desert with minor rolling hills. Dave meets up ...
