> Tunisia, the last day. And Egypt...

I spent my last night in Tunisia with Yassine and Mohammed in the desert. We made a fire and attempted to catch baby animals to skin and cook (just kidding). We made tea, chatted, and made some more tea. The desert sunrise is lovely, but personally I would have preferred it a few hours later.

After being sent nearly mad by Egyptian beaurocracy (no joke - it is mind-boggling) I popped over to Giza to look at the 9 pyramids closest to Cairo. For trivia buffs they are Cheops, Chepren, Mycerinus, and a further six small "Queen's Pyramids". Normally going into the compound isn't allowed after dark but the fence isn't quite complete, ahem.
