Since today we are in Siwa, an oasis in north-western Egypt in the libyan desert. We just arrived before sunset, so I can't really say a lot about the oasis but I've already had a small glimpse on the old village built from mud which seems to resemble some malian villages like Djenne - and I fell in love with it immediately. The evening we spent now with some people living here and - as I already discovered in Syria - I have always less problems to understand the Arabic from desert people... don't know exactly why but it's fun after all these big towns where I understood nothing at all that I start to understand here at least 25%, although the egyptian dialect is really hard.
