Full blog to follow but just to let you know that we are west of Alexandria and heading to the Libya border. What one sees on TV and the reality is worlds apart. People in the street are living life as if nothing is happening. So all good and did not encounter one strange situation.
And another update that we made it to a town called Soloum, some 10km from the Libyan border. Tomorrow morning we will be in Libya where all is quiet and we will be seeing one of Africa's best preserved Roman city Leptis Magna, the markets of Tripoli, tea with Gaddafi (kidding), the biggest man-made rivers in the world and more... I am not sure at all about internet in Libya as information is rather limited, but we are traveling with a guide taking us through the country so we are in safe hands. From all the reports we got from other travellers, Libya is like Sudan - completely misunderstood by the world as the people are the friendliest on earth.
We are therefore not sure when we can send a blog again, but as soon as we can, it will come...
