On 19 August 2014 we drove the last few hundred kilometres from Cairo to the port city of Alexandria. It was not one of our easiest days. We were tired and a bit stressed about getting the the paper work done to get the car shipped back to Mozambique.
But it was great to see the Mediterranean Sea - here is a picture of the three of us at the top of Africa! And beside that a photo of the end-of-the-drive kilometre reading on the GPS: 20,332.2 kms. Definitely a big drive.
My Dad spent the day in Alexandria at customs getting the car ready for export. He last saw the Pajero at the customs hall (see pic below) from where it gets loaded into a container and onto a ship to go back to Mozambique.
From Alexandria we we headed back by bus to Cairo. One more sleep (and a visit to the stunning Cairo Museum) and we were on a plane back to Canada.
By the way, if you have ever heard anyone talk about crazy traffic in Cairo, here's a photo to prove it. That was just one way - the other side also had eight jammed lanes most of the time. Although my friend Louis V says the traffic in Manilla is even more insane.
