Cape to Cairo 2010

A Motorcycle Diary

9 August (Day 41)

09 Aug

Still in Khartoum. Spent the day resting and planning the balance of our route to Cairo. There are a number of sites to see in the Sudan as this is an ancient place. The Egyptian kingdom at its height stretched all the way down into Ethiopia and there are temples and pyramids scattered all over the Sudan that are well preserved because of the hot and dry climate that we are keen to see.

It is SO hot here that it is just not practical to go out after 10am or before 6pm so eating, exercise (hotel has a great gym and pool), sleeping and catching up with the rest of the world has been the order of the day.

We had dinner at a great Lebanese restaurant called Assaha. At 8.30pm when we left to go to dinner, it was so hot it felt like wading through hot water. No pics today unfortunately as we have not left the coolness of the hotel.

BackABuddy Many of us have the means and wherewithal to undertake the dreams we want but elect to choose otherwise, many however, do not and that is the purpose of this plea. Afrika Tikkun (http://afrikatikkun.org// ) is a South African non governmental, non profit charity organisation run by the Lubner family that in essence does just that; re-provide the possibility to dream and to create the possibility of turning those dreams into a reality.

Unlike many pleas of this nature, I am not looking for any kind of sponsorship for my trip, but I am looking for your donation, regardless of its size to Afrika Tikkun. Please pledge generously as this is a fantastic cause that will assist them to provide food, care, education, health and social services to those that are desperately in need.
