Siwa and the Sahara

by Emily Benjamin

We first heard of Siwa in a travel magazine onboard an airplane. It was immediately appealing – a desert oasis, as far west of Cairo as you could be, bordering on Libya. Blue skies, endless soft sand of the Sahara Desert, hot and cold springs in the middle of nowhere, and isolation you’d have difficulty matching these days. And it wasn’t just a mirage – all of this, just 9 hours by night bus from Cairo. The bus is horrendous… but Siwa is surreal.IMG 2598IMG 2611Output1Output2IMG 2649IMG 2677IMG 2696IMG 2742IMG 2812Output4IMG 2926Output5IMG 3038Output9IMG 3082
