Friday Photo - Cycling in Egypt
This week's photo shows the start of the 2015 Cairo to Cape Town bicycle tour. The tour took 121 days and crossed 10 countries (Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa). According to the organizer, Africa is relatively safe, although she did admit that they had to be careful about bandits in parts of northern Kenya, as well as elephants in Botswana and Zambia. The tour has rest days in places like Khartoum, Addis Ababa, and Nairobi. Participants also visit sites like Victoria Falls. If you have ever seen Niagara Falls, Victoria Falls is twice as wide and twice as tall.
