Cairo Citadelle

After another day in Berba we again had to drive back to Cairo. Entering this large town we visited the Citadelle. Maria, Gerhard and Barbara walked through these most precious mosques of Cairo.

Petrol lack

No gas over 300km!

A calm promenade along the Nile Cornish is IMPOSSIBLE! Every meter, every second some Egyptians “welcome” you with their commercial interest! Of course, there are almost ... Weiterlesen...

Again with the little rest of gas Juliana drove us to the other side of the Nile. Gerhard and Maria wanted to see Hatschepsut Temple and the Valley of the kings.
