Today was a 135k ride into the middle of the desert. After yesterday’s frustration about going to fast without stopping, I rode by my self today, which was very nice. Some 10k before lunch I stopped at a nice place and just stared into the empty desert for some 15 minutes, feeling like Nasa’s Mars Rover. The landscape is just completely bare and empty and there is nothing to polute the horizon. Right after lunch we passed the first 1000k barrier. Only 10.000k to go!
Waking up along the Nile
Camels just outside the camp
Climbing out of the Nile valley into the desert
Power lines leading towards Aswan Dam
And then there was just nothing….
Nothing! Feeling like a Mars Rover
And we camp in all this nothing. Lots of sand flies though 😦
