End of Day 7 (Cycling days) Left Luxor at 8am today for the 120 km ride to Edfu, a ´non tourist' town on the west bank of the Nile about 120 km from Aswan.

Great ride, as the scenery changed a lot and we went through lots of interesting villages. We were forced by the Egyptian Police to virtually saty in groups of no less than 16 riders. I felt really sttrong as my flu leaves and I get back to 100%.

Edfu is a very interesting place....just returned from exploring the place and sampling its foods! Hustling bustling egyptian town, but with very few tourists.

Tomorrow we have 90 km ahead of us so we can get to Aswan the next day to meet the schedule of the ferrry across Lake Nasser
