Day 5 – Aswan


While, from Alexandria to Aswan, our progress through Egypt had been almost faultless, we encountered our first delay when we arrived at the Traffic Court on Friday morning in Aswan for a stamp which would confirm we had no traffic offences. The court was closed, as it was a weekend.

The court opened again on Saturday so we decided to head back to Adam’s House on the other side of the Nile where we re-re-packed the car, and in doing so discovered the absurd quantity of clothes we had bought. If only we had had time for a small test trip!

Despite the 45 degree heat we were very kindly treated to frequent cups of Nubian tea, a sweet tea served with fresh mint that was remarkably refreshing on a hot afternoon.
