We made it! Just arrived in Cairo after a day of police escorts and speed bumps, truly it was an adventure! All is well. Driving into Cairo we could see the Pyramids of Giza at a distance and it finally hit us- we’ve completed the epic Cape to Cairo overland adventure!
In celebration we’re off for some margaritas and tex-mex at Chili’s- the first hispanic food we’ve seen since December. Don’t judge, after being charged by gorillas, boogie boarding class 5 rapids, bribing cops in Nairobi, climbing Kilimanjaro, hunting with lions, eating all sorts of crazy food and surviving some harrowing experiences we need unlimited chips and salsa. Yum! 🙂

how was the drive up from luxor? what did you see along the way?
@Jess – the drive from Luxor to Cairo was mostly filled with varying degrees or police escorts ranging from one officer to 9. It might be a week or so before the blog catches up to us but we’ll be sure to share the strange couple of days.

I can hardly wait to hear about the police escorts; did you need them to keep you alive?!!
One can only wonder!
Our opinion was that it was complete overkill but there have apparently been problems in the past
Cape Town to Caro – EPIC, EPIC, EPIC!! Go get ya some Chillis!!!

I can see the headlines now, “I Should Log Off” an epic story of true love and adventure! Good to hear that you made it Cairo in one piece. Wow, a Police escort into the city! Truly a special moment.
