I really thought that I was going to get my visa for Sudan today. I woke up this morning and it seemed like fate. But I guess not.
The boat for Sudan comes once a week and it leaves on Mondays.
I've been in Aswan for 3 weeks now waiting for my visa. I could have either applied for a visa in Cairo or Aswan but everyone said it was better in Aswan. It was supposed to be a 2 hour process except that they made Americans wait for 2 days just to be anti-American.
Coming to Aswan was clearly the right decision. I've had a good time here. It's much cheaper than Cairo. But I can't stay here forever and it's almost time to make some hard decisions.
It's desperately hot right now and getting hotter by the week.
