Country: Sudan

It was a race against time to make the weekly ferry service across the Nile to Aswan, but I made it.

This near 20-hour ordeal, with no shade among hundreds of sweaty bodies on a rickety deck of an old boat, was a very hot ride!

Needless to say I was glad to finally arrive on Egyptian soil - or should I say sand - in what is my sixth and final country.

After finally getting all the paperwork in place in Aswan I set off back to the land border with Sudan, to continue walking the Nile.
