on our way from mombasa to luxor.

When we wher leaving kenia, we where leaving the green area of Africa.During the flight we saw the landscape change from green to the sandy looks of the dessert.The last part of the trip was looking at sand, sand and more sand.Sometimes we saw a road,or a smal airfoce base, and i was thinking if you are based overthere what are they doing in there in the free time.We overflew eritrea,ethiopia,sudan and egypt.Passed the beaches of the red sea without hotels.When we entered luxor we saw the nile area,and the landscape changed from desert to an oase of greenland and palm trees.

We arrived in luxor and when the plaine touched down and the speed reduces the temperature raised.It was very hot and dry.When we parked the plane and the stair was placed a friendy guard with a AK-47 was welcoming us.We closed up the plane and had to go to the customs.Because we where a private flight with an old airplane with Dutch, african and english people the custome officer had to go through 3 types of passports.And that tooks a long time. Finnaly we where picked up and went to the movenpick resort in luxor.The next day will be fill the airplane day.
