Hurghada to Aswan 510kms

Up bright and early to get as many kph as possible before the heat comes up. Roads again were really good until Luxor after that Google Maps put my on some back roads perhaps to avoid traffic but it was about 15km of dust bumps and pot holed. Had about 10 police road blocks today too (only 4 yesterday and no stops) Today 3 stops and one passport check, that only lasted minutes and I was soon on my way.

The picture below shows a dust cloud it was much denser than it looks in this picture and I thought it was a fire at first

Really weird saw two ambulance stations probably 50 km apart and in the middle of the desert, surrounded by nothing.

Every now and then you come across sudden green crops in the middle of desert. Some had solar panels nearby so assume they use solar to pump water from somewhere.

The pictures below show the locals and the green lush fields around any water sources and if course there are now lots of donkeys and carts and gelibeers.

My new hotel at Β£21 a night has a nice view overlooking part of the Nile
