Suddenly we hear a hard noise and we see a cloud of dust. An accident. We run to the corner. Two guys are badly hurt. Soon there is an ambulance, because there is nearby a checkpoint with an ambulance.
Still we drive through the desert.When our guide finally find our hotel, we are stopped by a checkpoint and we are not allowed to drive into that road. Welcome to Egypt?!
2 1/2 hours later we have a new hotel.Early to bed and early to rise, we have to drive a long distance to the north.
