... room using the internet and updating the blog. Bill joined me for a while and then headed to the room to watch bad English movies on our tiny TV.

We met Hanny and Mohammed at 6:00, but Khalid was unable to join us as he was having car troubles. Could this be the curse of Tutankhamen following us?? So, Mohammed Ali joined us to guide us to the Island.

I have a photo of the odometer reading 904,000km and it was best not to consider how much faith we had in these vehicles considering we ...

... to see the official tourist route, so we just explored ourselves, and found a large tomb that we went into.

Afterwards, we went to the Temple of Amun (Temple of the Oracle), which is a white stone temple on a hill, surrounded by mud-brick structures. The view from the temple is amazing, as it overlooks the Siwa Oasis, the Sahara Desert, and the Salt Lake. Supposedly, this was where Alexander the Great was told that he was the son of the the sun god ...
