I got on the 8:30am bus to Atbara which arrived around 3pm after long waits at two ferry crossings. I checked into the Nile Hotel, an oasis, clean rooms, clean bathroom and sheets and friendly Coptic Christian owner, Anthony. I wanted to stay for weeks. In the evening I found an ice cream store, my first cool treat in weeks. Can you imagine your first ice cream in weeks after a hot and dusty journey on the back of trucks over bumpy sand roads. The menu is still yogurt and dates and omlette and bread. I have lost at least 2 kilo adn my clothes are hanging from my limbs.
