Aug 23, 2007 - Trípoli, sin trámites

Nunca sabré si estuve como "ilegal" en Túnez finalmente 25 horas o sólo una, lo cierto es que en la frontera no me dijeron ni pío sobre el vencimiento de la visa. Así, llegué a esta nueva capital al amanecer; tampoco aquí fue fácil conseguir un hotel (el petróleo está a 100 $ así que como en Venezuela, todo el mundo está viajando y gastando). Después de un descanso y de ir al banco, paseé por la parte central de la ciudad, o si se quiere, por su medina. Los dos puntos más interesantes de ésta están en 2 extremos, uno es el Museo Jamahiriya...

Apr 10, 2006 - Sebha - Tripoli

We arrived at the airport at around 8.30pm and said good-bye to our drivers. However, Sabine would be this way again with another group in little more than a week and hoped she could have the same crew again.

With the Dutch group and others turning up too it was to be a full flight, but the airline in its infinite wisdom decided to use our plane on a flight to Istanbul, so we...

Mar 30, 2006 - Jalu - Benghazi - Tripoli

A long drive back to civilisation, followed by a night flight from Benghazi back to Tripoli. On the way back past Jalu we stopped for a few minutes beside an example of the pipes used to construct the Great Man Made River scheme. Although normally buried, we followed these pipes for hundreds of kms, not just between Jalu and Benghazi but also later in the trip to Sebha. Standing in the pipes gives some meaning to their diameter of 4 metres, and gives you a clue to the desperate measures Libya has used to secure a water supply for the...

Mar 23, 2006 - Frankfurt - Tripoli

After an early start and shuttle back to the airport, it wasn't long before I met up with Guenther, Fred and Jacques, 3 other members of out party taking the same route from Frankfurt to Libya. We had agreed to meet before going through security and Guenther had promised to carry one of my two telescope cases. After removing my day pack from my main bag to house my laptop, camera and emergency kit, there would be 3 cabin bags, more than the most obliging airline is likely to accept unless distributed among enough people. An X-ray scan of...
