Sunday 21 March 2010

Right back out of Dahab today, Ryan and I took off on a two-day desert trip. We spent the day today in a jeep, slipping through the loose sand, stopping off at big vistas, fun dunes, and a few places to make a fire and drink the millions of little glasses of tea that keep Egyptians going.

At the end of the day we walked through a winding canyon to come out onto an oasis in a valley, a little sprouting of improbable green after a day of seeing absolutely nothing but brown. It is a stop-off point for a lot of Bedouins in the area - we spent the night under the stars at one of their temporary camps, a few miles from the oasis.
