From Hell to Heaven

From Hell to Heaven

As I biked out of Ethiopia and crossed into Sudan on my birthday, I realized that I was leaving Hell and entering Heaven. Any cyclist who survives biking through Ethiopia will understand what I mean. Unfortunately my time in Sudan was hurried, as I was only allowed a two week transit visa with an expensive price tag. But the trip across the Libyan and Bayuda deserts of the Sahara was peaceful and colorful.     Addis Ababa, Ethiopia 9/1/18 to Aswan, Egypt, 7/2/18
