  30°N 26°E (visit #1)  

#1: The Area - the surroundings on all sides were the same

(visited by Prunella Servatius, Julian Servatius, Bertie Servatius and Tim Servatius)

28-Dec-2002 -- After a week of intense hardship trekking through the Western Desert on camels we finally reached our ultimate destination - 30N 26E. Dragging ourselves accross the last couple of meters we celebrated our achievement with a well deserved sip of water. What bliss.

Joke - it was in fact 100 meters from the tarmac road where we parked the car!
