Towards African mainland

We decided to leave stunning Ras Mohammed and Sinai Peninsula and  go towards Cairo and Giza. To get to African mainland we used the  Ahmed Hamdi Tunnel, which is an automobile tunnel under the Suez Canal. It is 1.63 km long and has an outside diameter of 11.6 m

When we finally got on the other side Charlie wanted to see that famous view of a huge ship crossing the Suez Canal. Unfortunately, there was no visible ship on the horizon, but we discovered interesting playground for kids nearby, which you can see in the photos below:D

We also were very happy as we discovered than diesel is cheap, cheaper than water. We estimated that we paid only 0,15 USD/liter !!!
