We spent some time in Luxor, Egypt, seeing the great sites there, but then headed way out into the Sahara to a crossroads called Siwa Oasis, where we stayed at an amazing place, Adrere Amellal. It’s like a Saharan village with no electricity but tons of amenities for the traveler.
I made the above shot at twilght, and painted the adobes with my little flashlight to open them up a bit.
We had a spectacular tour of the dunes of the Sahara via land rover, and I’d love to post more pictures, but my internet connection is sooooooo slow here that I’m lucky to get these two up. Below is the bar….a necessary place for any water hole or oasis!
Next stop, Jordan!
