    The gateway to the White Desert

    houses in bawiti

    Favorite thing: Baharia is a large oasis about 300 kilomtres (and 4-5 hours) from Cairo. It's famous not for its traditional architecure (very little interesting) but for being the gateway to the amazing white desert. The main town is Bawiti, and there's also a handful of equally unassuming small villages all around.

    Fondest memory: The lack of architetural interest is not a problem... local people make up for it with their welcoming and friendly attitude. We found no rudeness, no people begging for baksheesh... our stay was refreshing... in terms of people, it positively did not feel like Egypt - maybe it isn't. This is bedouins' land, after all.

    Our driver with his family

    Fondest memory: The great hospitality of the family of our driver.
    After our visit to Siwa the driver of the jeep invited us to his house for a glass of tea and a lunch.
    All his family was gathered because of a wedding in the village.
    Everybody liked to talk with us. We had to make a lot of pictures of everybody.
    The women liked it very much to make henna drawings on our hands, but because of lack of time they couldn't.
