Wow Frohan

I still can’t figure how corrupted people like these could have built the pyramids and other statures and things!!? Surely must have been another nation before them.
Wow, this was a gripping RR’; Pinned in front of the pc the whole 2 hours.
Things can turn bad in a flash!
Glad you here today, thanks for sharing. Wasn’t it for your dad you would have sat way longer! Quite sure this must have enriched your spiritual side.
Cheers!

Inspirational story.

I was also in Egypt at the time, traveling! That place in those years was a nightmare!! I can attest to that. I always said, if you stopped walking, they would steal your shoe lases!!

I vowed never to go back, and havn't needed to!! They can keep that shithole to themselves!

Frohan, what a gripping story.
What happened to your mates eventually, did they get to Dakar and beyond?
Well done and thanks for sharing.
