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 ;)
